  • Hello Marc Thomas, Your New Friend in making reporting from Bangalore India. I am 65, Trained Elec Engineer with PG diploma from WIPO and I.I.Sc., to SELL PATENTS and Licensing Rights to Spread Commercialisation of New Technologies. I had over 35 years invested in developing News Projects from Concept to Commissioning and to name a few of my exposure is setting up Banking PVC laminated Cards in Bangalore for ATM and Credit / Debit applications way back in 1975 before VISA MASTER came to India. Next I set up SMART Cards Factory in Hyderabad with SIEMENS for Producing IC Chip cards for Memory Applications. I had earlier brought SILOXANE OZ technology Water Based for Water Proofing, which made a history to achieve 1000% growth in less than 5years

    I am running NGO (for Social Objectives...Not for Profit under Registered Society...which can PROLIFERATE your Novel Nano DYESOL Cells Mfg., Panel Building, Customising Solutions including LAB Training, Selling Patent License Rights, Establishing Mfg Units, and HAND HOLD with your support to BRING IN Commercial Revolution in SOLAR POWER for City Based High Rise, ground based ideal homes and not to forget Commercial Applications in Factories, Mining Fieldsetc

  5. 5. Markets <ul><li>BIPV </li></ul><ul><li>Consumer Products </li></ul><ul><li>Automotive </li></ul><ul><li>Military </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>BIPV Perspective … </li></ul><ul><li>There is no one solution… </li></ul><ul><li>conservation and generation </li></ul><ul><li>There is no one technology… </li></ul><ul><li>wind, solar, centralized, distributed </li></ul><ul><li>… We need a Balanced Solution! </li></ul>
  7. 7. What is BIPV? - Substitution
  8. 8. What is not BIPV? <ul><li>Addition </li></ul>Good solutions, but not “integrated” and not a material “substitution”!!!!
  9. 9. Why BIPV <ul><li>All buildings have: </li></ul><ul><li>Roofs </li></ul><ul><li>Spandrel </li></ul><ul><li>Glazing/windows, inside/outside </li></ul><ul><li>Existing “mounting” structure </li></ul><ul><li>Substitution reduces overall costs: </li></ul><ul><li>BIPV is the PV technology itself, and does not include substrate or packaging/framing cost – they are already required for roofs or façades </li></ul><ul><li>Minimal additional costs for installation (wiring, connectors, etcc.) </li></ul><ul><li>Applicable for both new and existing buildings (retrofit) </li></ul><ul><li>DSSC technology can be uniquely leveraged its bifacial characteristics! </li></ul>
