Energy generation BIPV kit

BIPV: INFINITE offers a fully customisable “plug & play” PV system able to maximise energy harvesting and on-site renewable energy usage. Forget classic solar panels: INFINITE PV panels are available in a wide range of colours and 3D textures. 

The panels are installed on a prefabricated wooden structure that can be placed either on the façade or on the roof of the building.  Once they arrive on site, they only need to be fixed to the prefabricated module and plugged in, because the wooden frame already includes the supporting structure. This cuts time and costs of the installation.

The PV envelope is connected to centralised energy management hardware and software that optimise the flow between the BIPV system, the energy storage and the grid and allow to reach nZEB standards.

Why to choose the BIPV kit

  • It’s an environmentally friendly choice: thanks to the BIPV system, the building generates the energy it needs to power its appliances directly on site and from renewable sources. In this way it consumes little of no further energy.
  • It’s easy to install. The PV supporting structure is already integrated in the wooden frame.
  • Architects no longer need to choose between sustainability and aesthetic appearance. INFINITE PV modules look exactly like other standard cladding materials.
  • INFINITE interconnection system matches the energy produced on site with the energy consumed, allowing the building to reach nZEB standards.
