BIPV Encapsulation Markets – 2012
Published Date » 2012-05-15
No. Of Pages » N/A
As the subsidies that have supported the solar industry for years come into question or disappear altogether, the industry is looking around for new business models. One possible direction for solar is towards building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV), where the cost model is superior to regular PV. BIPV holds out the hope that the PV industry can flourish with fewer subsidies. As things turn out, this opportunity for the PV, will also be a growing opportunity for the encapsulation business too. Flexibility is often required in BIPV and this means that manufacturers of BIPV often have an immediate need for an effective flexible PV encapsulation system. In addition, as monolithic integration becomes more common, specialist encapsulation systems are...
