The mobile and info point (MIP) is a mobility station with bicycle parking garage and advice center for everything to do with cycling and e-mobility. It was commissioned by the city administration of Bad Kreuznach within the framework of the federal competition "Climate protection through cycling". The construction is characterized by a curved  translucent glass façade consisting of a combination of glass and frameless BIPV modules.

Aesthetic integration

High aesthetic quality is guaranteed by the BIPV modules, which are frameless and with polished glass edges on one side. The PV cells are clearly exposed on the building façade.

Energy integration

The BIPV façade to estimated to produce around 14 MWh per year. It generates electricity for e-charging station and lighting.

Technology integration

The 44 glass-glass BIPV modules (eFORM clear) were designed by SUNOVATION in 33 different sizes, each with individually selected cell layout. The XL module sizes have a notable dimension of more than 6.7 m2 (> 5 m height). The BIPV modules are made of high-efficiency monocrystalline cells and fall-proof glazing
