Active Facades & Building Skins | Technological Constructions
Active Building Materials achieve a double function. They produce electricity and are used to replace conventional building materials in parts of the building envelope. ISSOL is a manufacturer and a project developper of Building Integrated Photovoltaics - BIPV - for the construction sector.
The cost of BIPV
The cost of an active material is always to be compared to cost of its non-active equivalent.
The active material is always more cost effective because it is guaranteed to work for more than 30 years.
As an example : Isolated Glazing…
Cost of traditional Isolated Double Glazing
Total cost of Photovoltaic Isolated Double Glazing
Cost of inserting PV Technology
