Unlike standalone PV utility systems and rooftop solar systems, the penetration of the BIPV sector in the market requires direct renewable energy policies integrated with other uninitiated policies and regulations in building energy and construction sectors. Building a roadmap for the Indian BIPV sector is challenging at the current state of non-uniform and expansive market, demographic distinction, stakeholder value and hierarchy, industrial inflexibility with the present state of affairs, and severe lack of awareness within every stakeholder level.
The “Indian BIPV Report 2022: Status and Roadmap” aims to provide an overview of the Indian solar market by retracing historical milestones and the country’s evolutionary process, including policies, regulations, technological improvements and case studies. The report provides insights to the stakeholders of the solar value chain by focusing on the integration of photovoltaic systems into the built environment.
The Indian BIPV Report 2022 will be released the 11th of August as part of the i-Connect events organised under the Ministry of Science and Technology, Government of India, to celebrate Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav (India’s 75th Independence Day Celebrations).
Before the event release, SUPSI-ISAAC and CSIR-NIIST have the pleasure to share the three main chapters of Status Report in the form of monthly newsletters. Chapter 3 “Indian BIPV roadmap”, reveals the strategies to initiate and define a collective and concrete roadmap for BIPV implementation in India based on five main factual contemplation levels:
- Perspective: government policies, initiatives and business models
- Opportunities: multifunctionality and cost reduction
- BIPV Industrial Sphere: technology readiness, supply chain and certification
- Innovation landscape: research projects and engagement of international communities
- Defining stakeholder involvement: need for stakeholder awareness, extensive project planning and execution
