SOLAR ENERGY Webinar- Building integrated PV

This webinar will give you an overview of the enormous potential solar energy can have in improving the energy performance of buildings and also about how it can be used to create buildings that are better to live in.

Some questions we will address are: How do we assess the effectiveness of solar energy in buildings and what are the barriers for a larger upscaling of building integrated PV in Norway? Can PV contribute to good architecture and how do they work in Europe to find good building technical solutions? We will also hear from a Norwegian company that has had great success with its R&D activity and the Norwegian policy instruments
