As power demand increases exponentially and the strategic shift to sustainable architecture is being seen worldwide – the need for flexible and competitive price BIPV (building integrated photovoltaics) solutions becomes vital in construction sector. Metsolar novel glass-glass solutions offer variety of options from design to efficiency characteristics. The combination of our R&D driven thinking both with flexible manufacturing capabilities enables customized BIPV solutions for numerous applications, such as facades, roofs, balconies, greenhouses and more to reach the market.
Photovoltaics market growth last year
Expected annual solar facades market growth by 2024
Projected overall BIPV market size by 2024
Reached roof integrated photovoltaics revenue share in 2015
Custom size options

Custom Junction box, electrical and all-in-one solutions for power and voltage of a module
SmartFlex – Solution for cost competitive BIPV solar glass façades
One of our most ambitious BIPV solutions was participation in project SmartFlex. The project consisted of two parts: development and implementation. The result of this project was office building, located and already functioning in Lithuania with what we call “second skin” – a glass façade with customly arranged solar cell grid together with glass / glass modules with printed design. The SmartFlex solution stands out by its unique approach to designing the glass façades – as architects are free to use any color scheme and transparency, while still achieving competitive price per square meter of this solar glass façade.
Solar panels for classical and modern architecture roof tiles
Lightweight, shock and UV resistant solar tiles for roof integration. The custom solar panel solution was delivered for Luxol Photovoltaics. This tile is designed to fit both with modern and classical roofing styles. Solar panels using glass/glass technology, that are being integrated to tile, ensures needed characteristics similar to terracotta tiles.
