Future-proof cities: the urban potential of BIPV

As we venture into the era of future cities, the potential of building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) cannot be underestimated. In future cities, BIPV will play an integral role in addressing energy demands and reducing carbon footprints. With innovative design approaches, architects and engineers will harness BIPV potential to create visually stunning, eco-friendly structures. As we
