Our Products

PV Integrated onto Metal Profile 1
PV Integrated on Single Ply Membrane 2

The PV functionality is incorporated directly onto a metal profile in our factory to create a combined photovoltaic roof system that can be installed in the same way as a conventional roofing component.

Why BIPVco?

A Simple, Powerful Vision

BIPVco’s VISION WAS SIMPLE; TO TURN BUILDINGS INTO POWER STATIONS WITHOUT MAKING THEM LOOK LIKE ONE

Our research showed us that the main issue with large industrial, commercial and residential properties is that they consume vast amounts of energy, emit large quantities of CO2, yet produce no energy themselves.

We set ourselves the challenge to develop a product that could be built into a property’s fabric using established building materials.

The solution: To convert the building from a passive energy consuming entity, to one of an active energy generator.

The end result: photovoltaic building systems that convert solar energy into electricity.

Thoughts on BIPVco

From Our Partners

We are delighted to be associated with this pioneering manufacturing company that has taken the technology of integrating solar photovoltaic cells onto roofing substrates into a new paradigm. The BIPVco advantages to SABMiller as a property owner were very clear from the outset – to be able to turn our roofs and industrial sites into power producing buildings using elegant, lightweight, efficient and cost effective technology.
