Suntech Power’s Just-Roof building integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) module has been approved by French certification body CEIAB (Comité d'Evaluation de l'Intégration au Bâti). CEIAB is France’s official evaluation committee for all BIPV products, and its endorsement sees Just Roof gain eligibility for the country’s highest available feed-in-tariff.

“This approval from CEIAB is another positive milestone for Just-Roof in France and is testimony to the reliability and quality of our BIPV system. This assures our partners and customers that Suntech’s best-selling BIPV product is indeed the right choice,” said Jean-Yves Lindheimer, Suntech’s head of French operations.

CEIAB’s certification leaves the Suntech BIPV module ideally placed to take advantage of France’s soon-to-be-implemented RT 2012 legislation. The law stipulates that from January 2012 all commercial and residential buildings in France must comply with regulations governing their carbon dioxide emissions and energy consumption levels.

    Signs earlier in the year of the global industry entering a growth phase have now been confirmed beyond any doubt. Almost all the big-name suppliers have now announced some form of manufacturing capacity expansion, a trend that analysts agree will only gather pace as long as the levels of demand predicted over the next few years turn out to be correct.

  • Manufacturing The Solar Future: The 2014 Production Annual

    Although the past few years have proved extremely testing for PV equipment manufacturers, falling module prices have driven solar end-market demand to previously unseen levels. That demand is now starting to be felt by manufacturers, to the extent that leading companies are starting to talk about serious capacity expansions later this year and into 2015. This means that the next 12 months will be a critical period if companies throughout the supply chain are to take full advantage of the PV industry’s next growth phase.
