Building Integrated PV (BiPV) Best Practice Guidelines

These Best Practice Guidelines have been developed in consultation with a broad range of external organizations with an interest in building integrated photovoltaic (BiPV) applications. The report aims to facilitate the development of high quality BiPV projects. The guidelines are not intended to replace existing energy, environmental or planning policies, Australian standards or legislation at local, state and federal government levels.

The guidelines are designed as a guide only for designers, developers, tradesmen, building owners, planners, financiers and related practitioners. It is recommended that before proceeding with projects, parties should first seek and obtain their own independent professional support and advice.
