About the Event
With the building regulations growing tighter, the demand for renewables on site has seen exponential growth. The most common amongst these are PV systems. But how do we assess the energy production, analyze the number of panels, compare the different products and provide project-specific advice? IBPSA is excited to announce the upcoming workshop on Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV), a new user-friendly design tool, being developed at RMIT University to model building-integrated PV systems. Building-integrated photovoltaics are solar power modules that are built into a structure in place of standard building materials. BIPV adoption has been slow in Australia due to the complexities in informing and educating a broad-based industry about product availability, standards, and cost-effective solutions. In this workshop, we will introduce a user-friendly design tool ‘BIPV Enabler’ that integrates product, regulation, technical, economic, and construction data to create a leading BIPV solution. Join us for an interactive session with Associate Prof. Rebecca Yang to learn about the tool and provide feedback to the developers directly.
