Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/zvrdcm/building) has announced the addition of the "Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) Market: Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019" report to their offering.
BIPV is a photovoltaic technology that is integrated in the building structures primarily during construction. It is fairly less detrimental to the environment and generates electricity at lower cost than conventional power generating plants. BIPV integration curtails the overall construction cost by a substantial amount. Integration of BIPV products commonly includes rooftop, curtain wall and BIPV window. Zero energy building policy, strictly practiced in the U.S. and European countries, has been achieved effectively through the assistance of BIPV products. These BIPV have seen a great amount of growth in recent years in various construction activities.
Due to their high efficiencies and lower costs as compared to other technologies, first generation technologies such as C-Si technology are experiencing great demand from construction industry. Silicon forms one of the primary raw materials utilized in manufacturing C-Si BIPV modules. Evolution of second and third generation BIPV technologies coupled with abundant availability of silicon in the nature has led to significant drop in the C-Si BIPV module prices. Lower raw material cost makes C-Si technology less expensive than others.
