BIPV SOLUTIONS

In order to develop building solutions that involve the construction and energy industries, BSU Solar gathered a staff of architects and engineers with skills in different areas and complementary to each other.

In this way we could join the necessary "know-how" to form a company focused in developing BIPV solutions.

WHO

WE ARE

BSU Solar steering team is composed by architects and engineers with over 25 years of development of professional activity in architecture, construction and management in leading energy companies. 

 

Based on our experience and market knowledge, and taking into account that Uruguay is the first country in South America who legislate the bi-directionally exchange of energy with the public grid under a net balance system (Net Metering), we identified the opportunity to deploy a company specialized in applying the BIPV technology in the country.

 
 
 
 

GENERATING SUSTAINABLE

ARQUITECTURE

The use of photovoltaic glasses and flexible solar modules allows building facades, roofs, curtain walls, ventilated facades, skylights, balconies and any other building components,  which surfaces are exposed to sunlight, to generate electrical energy from photovoltaic power (PV), further improving the thermal, acoustic and lighting functions of the building inside.

OUR FLAGSHIP

PRODUCTS

Polycrystalline Silicon PV Glass

Allows natural light to indoor spaces, generating electricity with relative high levels of power output (10% transparency - 162 Wp / m2).

Available in different colours.
High-strength glass meets European safety standards for be used in roofs, skylights, car parks and public spaces where it is required to combine aesthetics with attractive shadows.

Flexible and lightweight panels

Up to 95 Watts/m2.

Specially designed for light-bearing roofs.

Simple peel off adhesive protector on the back of the module and sticks on the roof.

Modules backed with strong aluminium plate are suitables for facades or roof tiles. 

Cadmium Telluride Colourless PV Glass

Thin-Film technology 

Allows natural light to income into the building while generating electricity (power output up to 85W), even at low light levels. Variable transparency range (between 10% and 50%).

 

Opaque Cadmium Telluride PV Panel

Thin-Film technology

Ideal for parking lots, garages and other spaces where it is necessary to combine aesthetically high levels of shadows with high power output (118 Wp / m2).High performance even under non-optimal orientation and under occasional shadows.

Amorphous Silicon Transparent PV Glass

Allows natural light to indoor spaces, generating electricity, even with low light.
High-strength glass, meets European safety standards for use in ceilings and skylights.
Ideal BIPV solution in commercial roofs from service stations to greenhouses.

 

 

a-Si Opaque and Transparent Panels

High powered and contemporary building envelope solution that provides:

  •  2016 technology

  • Higher power output

  • Better performance on non-optimal faces

  • Frameless glass/glass design providing continuous surface

BRANDS

BSU Solar was appointed exclusive distributor for Uruguay of Polysolar Ltd. (UK) in order to develop the BIPV culture in the local market. 

Polysolar Ltd. was established in 2007 after being awarded, in Cambridge (UK), as a leader company in the photovoltaic technology development. Currently it produces and sells truly transparent thin-film glass (ranges from 10% to 50%).

Flisom was founded in 2005 as a spin-off of the Laboratory of Solid State Physics of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Zurich. 

It produces solar panels based on the CIGS (Copper-Indium-Gallinium-Selenide) thin film technology.

Since 2019 they are developing a distribution network for their ligthweight, flexible and ultra-thin solar modules that can be directly applied on low-load bearing roofs and facades. BSU Solar is enable to develop projects in Uruguay.

FUN FACTS

The integration of renewable energy systems into architectural design is a topical and prevalent theme that

presents opportunities for innovative approaches to urban design and engineering, while meeting current and

future building and energy efficiency requirements.

2010 2012

DECREE  173/010
Uruguay was the first South America country who legislate the bi-directionally exchange of energy with the public grid under Net Metering system.
DECREE  02/012 Investments in solar equipment qualify as clear energy production indicator (P+L), which can be promoted by  law 16.906 (established significant tax benefits).

2015

COP21 
Also known as the 2015 Paris Climate Conference, for the first time in over 20 years of UN negotiations, 195 countries aim to achieve a legally binding and universal agreement on climate, with the aim of keeping global warming below 2°C. That issue represents the turning point in the development of clean energy for urban areas.
significant tax benefits).

2017

MIEM resolution of 12.05.2017 regulates the conditions for bi-directional energy exchange in cases included in decree 173/010.
 
The annual injection of electricity to the UTE  grid must be less than or equal to the annual consumption taken from said network, which enhances the use of BIPV for the development of  self-comsumption projects in urban areas.

what´s next?

PROJECTIONS
International researchers predict the total building-integrated solar photovoltaic (BIPV) market will grow from about $3 billion in 2015 to over $9 billion in 2019, and surge to $26 billion by 2022, as more truly "integrated" BIPV products emerge that are monolithically integrated and multifunctional. Replacing existing construction materials with opaque or transparent photovoltaics represents the future of construction for urban areas.
