Building- and product-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV and PIPV) are identified as key enabling technologies to make 'near-zero energy buildings' and 'net-zero energy districts' a reality. The mass adoption of BIPV and PIPV solutions can only be achieved by developing cost-efficient and sustainable thin-film technologies with unbeatable aesthetic functionalities, mechanical flexibility and optical tunability.

Consumers are willing and ready to play their part in the green housing transition, but they will need guidance and support along the way, writes Monique Goyens. Goyens is director general of BEUC, the European consumer organisation.   Europe’s building stock currently accounts for 36% of European greenhouse gas emissions. Addressing this will mean future-proofing our homes by thoroughly renovating them. But the complexity and expense of doing so is holding many people back.

The growth of Europe’s solar photovoltaic (PV) sector has been robust thanks to dramatic reductions in the generation costs of electricity. It is important to extend the lifetime and improve the reliability, performance and profitability of PV generation, and allow utility-friendly high-penetration of the PV.

UIPI conducted an online survey to assess European property owners’ capacity and willingness to renovate their homes. By approaching how the sector and households are adapting and making their properties more climate friendly, and how the Covid-19 has affected their objectives, we can now draw a more accurate picture of where property owners stand regarding renovation.

Positive energy districts and neighbourhoods (PEDs) are a promising approach to rapidly achieve decarbonisation goals while creating more resilient and liveable cities. However, PEDs are challenging to implement because they require fundamental changes in the ways that cities are planned, designed, and operated in the long term.

The European Strategic Energy Technology Plan (SET Plan) is a key stepping-stone to boost the transition towards a climate neutral energy system through the development of low-carbon technologies in a fast and cost-competitive way.   By improving new technologies and bringing down costs through coordinated national research efforts, the SET Plan helps promote cooperation among EU countries, companies and research institutions, and in so doing also deliver on the key objectives of the energy union.
