Innovative BIPV façade on administrative building in Klaipeda, Lithuania

The promising area of building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) is still considered to be reserved for exclusive construction. However, BIPV potential is much greater and design-led solar solutions could be developed in an easier way.

Therefore SmartFlex project team has overcame many challenges and showed real potential of BIPV on double skin façade on administrative building in Klaipeda. Almost 600m² façade is covered with PV modules varying from 0.7×3.5 up to 1.8 x3.7m in size. One of the main innovative approaches used in façade is top end digital printing technology which lifts BIPV in to another level of aesthetics.
