With the progress in human development achieved in recent years, the demand and depletion for natural resources are on the rise. To pursue a better life, we have made significant impact on the planet. Due to frequent natural disasters and extreme weather, experts call for energy conservation and carbon reduction to mitigate impact on the planet caused by global warming. While we are exploring alternative energy, governments around the world provide many incentive investment policies to support the development of green energy. Solar energy is a sustainable natural resource. It is rich and no need to be transported or refined so it barely causes pollution to the environment. Solar energy is a new life style for people and it creates a wonderful future for the society and human.
Building Integrated Photovoltaics(BIPV), refers to integrating photovoltaics modules into the building envelope, such as the roof or the surface. It can not only generate electricity with sunlight but also possess heat insulation effect which is useful to reduce the temperature in the interior of the building and the energy consumption of appliances. The risk of power failure in a great scale is lower because of distributed power generation. The job opportunity will be created and the social welfare and social costs will be also reduced, and thus driving economic development.
