Solar Facades

What are Solar-Facades(BIPV)?

Solar Facades are a form of a BIPV that converts renewable energy from the sun into electricity. Solar Facades are like any facade, but with modifications. They are integrated into any building and construction and serve the secondary purpose of generating electricity. They observe excessive heat, air pollution and dampens the sound.

Solar Facades get integrated into the walls before or after the construction is finished.

Where are Solar-Facades used?

According to the application and the type of construction, the integration of Solar Facades are categorized as:

  • Solar building skins
  • PV cladding
  • Wall-mounted Solar Facades
  • Wall integrated Solar Facades
  • Solar panel cladding for ventilation
  • Solar Facades for insulation
  • The second layer on the wall
  • Solar glazing
  • Solar panel skylights
  • Solar Shading for balconies

Types of Solar-Facades

Wall-mounted and wall integrated facades are the most popular types of facades that companies are manufacturing currently.

According to the application and the type of construction in which the integration is done, the Solar Facades are categorized. These categories are

  • Solar building skins
  • PV cladding
  • Wall mounted Solar Facades
  • Wall integrated Solar Facades
  • Solar panel cladding for ventilation
  • Solar Facades for insulation
  • Second layer on the wall
  • Solar glazing
  • Solar panel skylights
  • Solar Shading for balconies

How does a Solar-Facade work?

High-rise buildings receive sunlight throughout the day. Some buildings face disintegration due to this harsh environment. To tackle this issue and generate energy while doing so, Solar Facades are integrated into the structure walls.

Solar panels present in the building absorb most of the heat and light from the sun’s rays. With the help of photovoltaic cells, this renewable source of energy is converted into electricity. All the panels are interconnected with optimizers and inverters to get optimum output for consumption.

What are some big manufacturing brands of Solar-Facades?

Companies are finding eco-friendly and sustainable approaches for developing architecture, especially in remote locations. These companies are manufacturing Solar panels for facades and BIPV.
