The workshop organised in Berlin on 19th and 20th March 2018 is part of a series of European conferences and workshops in the field of Energy Efficiency in buildings and cities with a focus on innovation in solar building skins / building integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV), as well as related to areas such as smart grid, storage of renewable energies in buildings/cities, e-mobility and Internet of Things (IoT), etc.

The events are organised by the various leading European national research institutes, which are Steering Committee members of the European Technology & Innovation Platform Photovoltaic (ETIP PV) together with SETA Network and in collaboration with the BIPV group of the ETIP PV, supported by national industries and stakeholder & associations.

A market pull approach is central to these workshops to answer the following key questions:

  • What innovation, be it aesthetical, technological, legislative, financial or otherwise, is required by the building industry stakeholders (developers, planners, architects, owners etc.) to enable massive-scale deployment of BIPV?
  • What is required to stimulate innovation through interdisciplinary collaboration among the building and PV sectors?
