BIPV Poised for Explosive Growth

BIPV Poised for Explosive Growth

Building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) currently make up a small but increasing part of the world PV market, and many analysts predict a growth explosion in the sector, resulting in a multibillion-dollar annual market segment. The global BIPV market was estimated at 1201 MW in 2010 and is expected to increase at a 56% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) to reach a capacity of 11,392 MW in 2015, according to Building-Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV): Technologies and Global Markets, a new report from analysis firm BCC Research.

Switch2 technology is shortlisted for BusinessGreen Leaders Award

Switch2 technology is shortlisted for BusinessGreen Leaders Award

Switch2 has reached the finals of the prestigious BusinessGreen Leaders Awards 2016 in recognition of its Incontro smart billing and energy management system for community heating schemes. The new three-in-one, pay-as you-go smart billing and energy control and monitoring technology has been shortlisted in the Energy Efficiency Project of the Year category. Incontro helps developers and landlords to reduce debt risk and improve environmental performance of district heating schemes. The technology also makes it simpler for residents to pay for their energy and control and monitor their energy usage. This leads to energy efficiency savings and lower bills. The UK designed and manufactured technology takes smart metering to a new level. It is an advanced multifunctional energy system that combines either prepayment or credit billing with monitoring household energy usage; simple to use multi-zone thermostat, time and temperature control; and an in-home display. The touch screen has a large, clear colour display – providing a weather feed, account balances, meter readings, CO2 emissions performance, and current and historic cost and consumption histograms showing various time periods – from hourly to yearly. Kirsty Lambert, Director of Switch2 said: "It is an honour to be shortlisted for this prestigious award alongside some of the UK's most inspiring and innovative green companies. We are extremely proud to be among fellow finalists such as the National Trust, the Body Shop, Aldi, Panasonic, O2, Willmott Dixon, Gentoo, Exeter City Council and Northern Rail." She continued: "When residents have an opportunity to measure and monitor how much energy they are using, their consumption can reduce dramatically. Incontro makes saving energy easy, informative and exciting, so we are expecting this to translate into lower bills and improved environmental performance." This news follows Switch2's success in winning the European Smart Metering Technology of the Year Award for Incontro. Switch2 remotely manages and monitors the Incontro system from its UK customer service centre, which provides complete billing, prepayment and administration services to more than 50,000 homes across 400 community energy and district heating schemes. The BusinessGreen Leaders Awards Ceremony will take place at The Brewery venue in the City of London on 6 July. Further information: www.incontro.co.uk
