Building integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) refers to photovoltaic or solar cells that are integrated into the building envelope to generate ‘free’ energy from sunshine. BIPV product development has been ongoing for the past 30 years, but their practical applications have been limited in China. Clients and end users lack knowledge of cost analysis, to make more accurate decisions on use of PV products.

Environmental and Resource assessment for uptake of LC3...

picto-resource
This study undertaken to ascertain the potential sustainable impact of LC3 in India's cement mix. Conducting a comparative analysis of the environmental and resource performance between two diverse cement production scenarios - Business As Usual and Low-Carbon Pathway (LCP), the study concludes that introduction and growing proportion of LCPs have a better environmental and resource performance - thereby establishing the legitimacy of LC3 as the cement for sustainable future in India.

Meeting Global Housing Needs with Low Carbon Materials

picto-resource
This report proposes the greater use of low-carbon building materials in addressing the low-cost housing gap in cities. While not a technical design guide, this study provides a framework to support material selection in the design stages for low-cost housing. It takes a life cycle approach to material selection and minimizes the externalization of energy demands of materials throughout their life-cycle. The report also discusses supply chain considerations and the roles of key stakeholders.
