The PV is integrated in a series of satellite dish-shaped structures located at Exibition City, Dubai. The centerpiece for Expo’s green theme, the pavilion will exceed LEED Platinum standards.

Aesthetic integration

The BIPV modules completely cover the circular roof thanks to the different 330 special trapezoidal geometries designed for the specific application.

Energy integration

The integrated power generating surface is estimated to produce around 4 GWh per year. This energy production was foundamental to achieve the desired LEED certification. The glass is designed for highest power generation.

Technology integration

The 5,080 integrated glass-glass BIPV modules (eFORM clear) were individually designed by SUNOVATIOON’s. The structure is walkable for cleaning and maintenance, and characterized by a long-term stability of the glass compound.
