Building Attached Photovoltaics Markets
  • Renewable Energy

    The report analyzes and pinpoints the opportunities that are likely to emerge in the BAPV market in the next few years.  Within the report we quantify those opportunities in a series of forecast charts and tables that are provided in both value and volume terms.  Volume shipments are forecasted in terms of area covered and MW shipped.  Breakouts in the forecasts are provided by type of building, type of BAPV products roofing and key absorber materials used. In addition, we project the nations and regions that will generate the most revenues for BAPV.

    The report also addresses both the kinds of buildings and the parts of buildings that BAPV products should be targeted and how manufacturers of BAPV can make the best transition to the time when BIPV surpasses BAPV in market dominance.
