The real estate sector in India is the second-highest employment generator in India after the agriculture sector. In the coming years, rapid growth in the construction market and the adoption of state-of-the-art construction technologies are expected in India.


If the necessity to improve the energetic performance of buildings induces the stakeholders of the construction sector to use solar systems, the rapidly growing construction market in India requires introducing new ideas and technologies. The installation of solar systems as building envelopes not only permits to transform buildings into solar power plants but also to integrate multifunctional properties of the construction system, replacement of building cladding materials and improving aesthetics considering the architectural image.


The “Indian BIPV Report 2022: Status and Roadmap” has been developed by SUPSI-ISAAC and CSIR-NIIST. It 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, Govt. 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. The chapter 2 “Solar construction in India”, reveals the role of BIPV within the construction framework by considering technical and energetic aspects to support manufacturers, architects, and the construction value chain stakeholders in making the timeliest decisions.
