No. of pages: 0

NanoMarkets latest report on BIPV glass analyzes future scenarios for BIPV. It includes a detailed eight-year market forecast with breakouts by type of building and PV technology and in both volume and value terms. We also discuss the BIPV glass strategies of leading glass and PV firms as well the community of firms whose core business is developing and installing BIPV glass.

One possible road to a larger addressable market for BIPV glass will be to use solution-processed PV layers and here we note that both Pilkington and AGC are already actively involved in joint development projects that could do just that. With this in mind, our report examines how the economics of BIPV glass will evolve based on c-Si, thin-film, and DSC/OPV materials

This report also discusses how BIPV glass can better be sold to architects, who are sometimes skeptical of the BIPV glass concept, but remain the key decision makers on the demand side. In part this is about improved marketing. But as we discuss in this report, it is also a matter of playing up the aesthetic advantage of solar glass (for example with tinted and colored products) and by incorporating additional smart features such as hybrid light/photovoltaic capability.

This report is based around NanoMarkets ongoing program of publishing industry analyses of various segments of the BIPV market, an area in which we have been involved for five years.

  • New Zealand Oil and Gas Report Q2 2015
    Published: 25-Feb-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 105
    BMI View: Over the last quarter, oil and gas activity has mainly been confined to onshore. First production from the Maari growth project will drive an increase in oil production, though over the mid-term decline is inevitable. Long-term hydrocarbon potential remains strong with 18 under-explored sedimentary basins outside of the producing Taranaki basin, though exploration will progress slowly. We highlight the following major trends and developments in New Zealand's oil and gas sector: ? The 2......
  • Nordics Power Report Q2 2015
    Published: 25-Feb-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 89
    BMI View: This quarter we have extended our forecast to 2024. This notwithstanding, we maintain our long-held view that, while growth expectations in the region are improving, economic woes in the eurozone remain a major risk factor for the consumption and generation outlook of the three Nordic countries, as more regional instability could undermine their economic activity. In terms of sector trends, we note that Denmark appears to be losing its energy self-sufficient status; lower gas and oil p......

    BMI View: The outlook for Angola's oil sector remains broadly positive, with highly prospective offshore acreage and a number of major projects under development. However, sustained lower oil prices pose downside risk to production growth post-2020, as rapid natural decline rates and a slowdown in investment combine to undercut output levels. Gas production will remain limited throughout our 10-year forecast period due to low domestic consumption, unfavourable pricing dynamics and demand constra......

In a bid to improve energy security, the government is keen to incorporate renewable energy (primarily solar and wind) into the power mix and has taken ste......
  • Bolivia Oil and Gas Report Q2 2015
    Published: 25-Feb-2015        Price: US $1295 Onwards        Pages: 115
    BMI View: The near-term outlook for the oil and gas sector remains strong on a steady pipeline of upstream investment that has most benefited gas exports, the country's chief source of earnings. However lower global oil prices will result in cuts to exports prices, damaging Bolivia's fiscal outlook in 2015. The weak reserves outlook for oil and gas will continue to weigh on the long-term outlook for the sector. ? Bolivia continues to benefit from steady upstream exploration, with Petroandina rev......
