Moser Baer commissions first building integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) technology led solar application in Hyderabad

Moser Baer India Ltd. said its Engineering Procurement Construction arm had commissioned a unique building integrated photovoltaic or BIPV technology led solar application in Hyderabad.

The commissioning of BIPV application in India heralds the arrival of this new age technology which would allow commercial buildings to increase the use of renewable source energy in aesthetic manner.

BIPV technology provides unique opportunities to convert glass windows, front facades, exteriors and other building integrated applications into solar panels, which will directly capture sunlight and covert them into power.

Using this technology, the exterior facade on the front of the Jubilee Hills shopping complex at Hyderabad was converted into solar panels to erect a 1.8 kWp solar application. These panels will generate electricity to meet the power requirements in the corridors of the shopping complex.

As per BCC Research, BIPV currently is a small but noticeable part of the world solar PV market. The global market was valued at 1,201MW in 2010 and is expected to increase at a 56 percent compound annual growth rate (CAGR) to reach a capacity of 11,392MW in 2015, the company said.

  1. It is a good news future solar applications market. I would like to visit the site to have first hand experience of this venture.

    Congratulations to EPC wing of Moserbaer India

  2. It is not clear what is meant by “unique BIPV technology led solar application”. Also the statement that commissioning of a BIPV system in Hyderabad “heralds the arrival of this new age technology” may be misleading people to think that this is the first BIPV system in India. TERI’s Retreat in Gwal Pahari and PEDA’s office building in Chandigarh have had BIPV systems for several years now. In the residential sector, 20 houses have been built in the New Town area of Calcutta by WBREDA with BIPV features.

    Still, this is a good development. Moser Baer should have given the exact name of the shopping complex in Jubilee Hills so that people can visit it.
