Pilkington Austria BIPV Façade, Bischofshofen, Austria

The Project
A new type of unique BIPV façade was installed at Pilkington Austria office building in Bischofshofen in cooperation with Techno-Z. The BIPV glass panels cover the entire vertical and south-facing (SE 160°) façade surface, both window and spandrel areas.

The product Pilkington Sunplus™ BIPV Vision, which is partially covered with PV cells and still offers a good view to the outside, is suitable for the window areas. Pilkington Sunplus™ BIPV Spandrel was installed in the spandrel area. It is a product similar to a façade spandrel panel, which is opaque, but it is fully covered with PV cells.

The total façade area at Pilkington Austria is 66.5 m², consisting of 30.4 m² Vision glass and 36.1 m² Spandrel glass. In total, the façade has a maximum output of 7.31 kWp, where 2.30 kWp comes from the window glazing and 5.01 kWp from the spandrel area.
