Romag offers insight into BIPV

A new RIBA certified CPD (continued professional development) entitled Integrated Photovoltaics is now available from UK PV manufacturer Romag.

Romag says it has developed the informative one hour session to give architects and specifiers an in-depth understanding of integrated PV solutions and how they can be used in buildings to meet today’s increasingly stringent efficiency targets.

The presentation aims to give an understanding of solar PV technology, its applications, specifically roof and building integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) and the UK Feed-in Tariff.

David Papworth, sales director at Romag, said: “With an ever growing focus on sustainable construction via Building Regulations, planning requirements and the Code for Sustainable Homes, BIPV offers a powerful solution for architects and designers.

“From refurbishments and renovations through to new build projects, PV can be incorporated into almost any building project and our new CPD aims to demonstrate this.”

The new CPD session has been classified under the following core curriculum categories Designing and building it:  design, construction, technology and engineering and Climate: Sustainable Architecture. The Curriculum has been created by RIBA to ensure key architectural skills are covered in CPD activities and as a RIBA certified seminar the new Romag seminar earns double points towards statutory learning targets for RIBA members.
