|ICS Code (Solar energy engineering):||27.160|
IEC 63092-1 specifies BIPV (building-integrated
This document applies to photovoltaic systems that are integrated into buildings with the photovoltaic modules used as building products. It focuses on the properties of these photovoltaic systems relevant to basic building requirements and the applicable electrotechnical requirements. This document references international standards, technical reports and guidelines. For some applications, national standards (or regulations) for building products may also apply in individual countries, which are not explicitly referenced here and for which harmonized International Standards are not yet available.
This document is addressed to manufacturers, planners, system designers, installers, testing institutes and building authorities.
This document does not apply to concentrating photovoltaic systems or photovoltaic systems using concentrating photovoltaic modules.
This document addresses requirements on the BIPV systems in the specific ways they are intended to be mounted and the mounting structure, but not the BIPV module itself, which is within the scope of IEC 63092-1.
