The situation is different with Building-Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV), where the photovoltaic systems are part of the building and are integrated into the façade or roof. They can be inserted as functional elements and take on additional functions, for example as thermal insulation, visual protection or sound insulation. They can also enrich the exterior façade as design, architectural and aesthetic elements. Thin-film solar modules are particularly suitable for building integration.
