I. BAPV

 

Overview

Hanergy has spent years in R&D and production of light-weight and environmental friendly thin-film photovoltaic (PV) modules with solid low-light performance. With our technology, the existing large factories, building structures, and even residential buildings can become BAPV buildings with simple retrofitting. The easy installation process of the PV modules will bring you not only the financial benefits from solar power generation, but also increase the social values by making your buildings go green. BAPV is your best choice if you wish to ensure that your company or home maximizes its profit and social impacts, as the system can provide to you long-term financial benefits from solar power generation while keeping the existing buildings intact.

 

 

Introduction to BAPV

 

As one of the common building-based PV applications, BAPV attaches PV modules to buildings by simple retrofit structures and maintains the original functions of the buildings despite the attachment. Such power generation system is easy to install and promote for its advantages such as space and energy saving.

 

 

II. BIPV

 

Overview

The increasing demands for a comfortable environment have caused larger energy consumption from heating and air conditioning of the buildings and triggered a public call for carbon reduction. Through integrating solar power generation products to flat and slanted roof-tops, curtain walls and ceilings, BIPV can bring you green office and residential buildings, help to reduce carbon footprints, and produce benefits from solar power generation. In this way, your buildings will have greater social values and speak for brand-new green ideas.

 

 

Introduction to BIPV

BIPV refers to the photovoltaic modules  integrated with buildings as an indispensable part for the purpose of power generation, shelters of wind, rain, and heat insulation. BIPV distinguishes itself from BAPV in that PV modules in BIPV are an indispensable part of the construction materials to the building. 
BIPV advantageous in stable electricity supply, space saving, building material saving, pro peak regulation, environment friendly and very low carbon footprint.

 

 

Application Areas of BIPV

BIPV can be applied to skylight roof-tops, transparent thin-film glass, PV-tiled rooftops, walls, and PV curtain walls.
