BS EN 50583-2:2016

Photovoltaics in buildings. BIPV systems

Status : Current   Published : January 2016



This document applies to photovoltaic systems that are integrated into buildings with the photovoltaic modules used as construction products. It focuses on the properties of these photovoltaic systems relevant to essential building requirements as specified in the European Construction Product Regulation CPR 89/106/EEC, and the applicable electro-technical requirements as stated in the Low Voltage Directive 2006/95/EC / or CENELEC standards. This document references international standards, technical reports and guidelines. For some applications in addition national standards (or regulations) for building works may apply in individual countries, which are not explicitly referenced here.

The document is addressed to manufacturers, planners, system designers, installers, testing institutes and building authorities.

This document does not apply to concentrating or building-attached photovoltaic systems. 1

This document addresses requirements on the BIPV systems in the specific ways they are intended to be mounted but not the BIPV modules as construction products, which is the topic of EN 50583‑1.
