BIPVco - Turning Buildings into Powerstations

Every hour, the sun radiates more energy onto the earth’s
surface than the entire human population uses in a year.

Implement BIPVco today

OUR VISION

To convert the building envelope from a liability into an asset by using the roof and wall spaces to generate and store energy.

 

Our approach is a simple one . . . to create a fully integrated solar roof capable of generating clean, green and free energy

‘THE USE OF SOLAR POWER HAS NOT BEEN OPENED UP
BECAUSE THE OIL COMPANIES DO NOT OWN THE SUN’.

RALPH NADAR
Efficient

Using the latest advances in cell design and manufacturing, BIPVco and its commercial partners have developed a highly efficient module.

Integrated

BIPVco roof solutions are fully integrated. The PV module is incorporated directly onto the steel or membrane roof.

Cost Effective

BIPVco roofs deliver both environmental and economical benefits over traditional roofing and solar solutions. 

Turn your buildings into powerstations

Our Products

PV Integrated onto Steel Profile 1
PV Integrated onto Aluminium Profile 2
PV Integrated onto TPO Membrane 3

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

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

The PV functionality is incorporated directly onto the membrane in our factory or on site to create a combined PV roof system that can be installed in the same way as a conventional roofing component, or as a retro fit.

Why BIPVco?

A Simple, Powerful Vision

BIPVco’s VISION WAS SIMPLE; TO REDEFINE THE BUILDING IN A WAY NO ONE ELSE HAS EVER DONE.

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.

So we set ourselves the challenge: to develop a product that could be built into buildings to help power them.

The Solution: To convert the building from a passive energy consuming entity, to one of an active energy generator. The solution was to turn buildings into power stations. So thats what we did!

I would recommend BIPVCo as a strategic development partner to any outfit that is looking to demonstrate 3rd generation PV technologies in the built environment at a relevant scale, in order to achieve product accreditation and market entry.
