The goal of the Dem4BiPV project is to create awareness in BIPV and to inspire young talent to become BIPV specialists. In order to achieve these goals, a ~40 ECTS master-curriculum focusing on BIPV is targeted for various European academic institutes.
This curriculum is currently under development, although BIPV could already be part of existing courses. For this reason, the project started with the development of four lectures on BIPV as an introductory course on this topic. The four lectures cover the following topics:
- Lecture 1: Introduction to BIPV
- Lecture 2: Influence on electrical performance
- Lecture 3: BIPV vs. Conventional construction & Environmental impact
- Lecture 4: Market development and aesthetics
The lectures will be complemented with an assignment which can be worked on during tutorials.
