10.45 - 12.15  Part 4: Parallel working groups
  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 solar building skins/BIPV?
  • What is required to stimulate innovation among investors, building industry and PV industry through an interdisciplinary collaboration?

In the following working groups, different aspects of the workshop´s key question will be addressed and the various issues discussed should lead to an effective approach to stimulate Innovation within the Energy Efficiency and BIPV sector:

1- New buildings / Focus on innovation of solar building skin technologies / BIPV
    Chair: Nicolo Guariento, ARUP, Building Envelope Desing / Gregor Kassl, ARUP, Berlin

  • National developers’ and building industries’ approach for integration of energy efficiency measures and solar building skin technologies / BIPV into innovative design concepts.
  • Development of an innovative approach for facade integration of BIPV with building envelopes companies, together with developers, architects and investors for specific projects.

2- Existing building stock / National real estate companies:

     Chair: Christine Lemaitre, DGNB, CEO

  • Development of market approach for renovation of existing building stock with innovative building skin technologies / BIPV and energy efficiency concepts. Evaluation of various BIPV solutions, based on stakeholders’ needs.

3- BIPV-technological needs and opportunities for the national building material and PV industry
    Chair: Sebastian Lange, Allianz

  • Input for national research and development approach

4- Financial Mechanism / Improvement of financial conditions:

    Chair: Agustín Escardino Malva, European Commission, DG Research & Innovation, New and Renewable Energy Sources, Deputy Head of Unit

  • Financial suport instruments for innovative BIPV projects in new buildings and in existing building stock
