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.
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.
The use of photovoltaic glasses and panels allows building glass facades, roofs, curtain walls, ventilated facades, skylights, balconies and 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.
BIPV: BUILDING INTEGRATED PHOTOVOLTAICS
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%) and leads the technological development of the next generation organic polymers photovoltaics (OPV) for clear windows glazing.
