Buildings today are a leading global consumer of energy, and this trend is likely to continue well into the future, primarily driven by economic and population growth. This trend is increasingly recognized by a multitude of countries worldwide. Federal, state and local governments perceive investing in green energy technologies for new and existing buildings as an opportunity to achieve greenhouse gas reduction targets. Consequently, energy efficiency in buildings has evolved into a major factor of the green movement in recent years, and these factors are driving the increased importance of energy efficiency in buildings.

BIPVs make up a small but increasingly noticeable component of the global PV market. Some BIPV applications are emerging as major growth segments that will reach gigawatt-scale annual sales within a decade. When annual capacity installations are totaled, the entire BIPV sector is found to already be beyond the gigawatt level of annual capacity. Unlike the rapid progress made in building PV capacity with utility-scale power plants, no feasible method exists for complete vertical integration with BIPV projects in all existing and planned buildings. For this, companies need partners, affiliates, alliances, visionaries and champions.

However, the outbreak has led to a significant change in consumer behavior and demand, purchasing patterns, rerouting of the supply chain, dynamics of current market forces and significant interventions of governments. And, just like any other market, the BIPV market was impacted by the pandemic in 2020.

Two types of construction markets can include BIPV components: new-builds and retrofits. The economic upheaval caused by the COVID-19 pandemic severely depressed new construction in many regions of the world. In developed economies, renovations and retrofits will show more significant opportunities in the coming year since those projects, always necessary, are more likely to be eligible for public financial incentives and potential developer participation.

The silicon used to fabricate solar cells is either crystalline (single-crystal or multi-crystal) or amorphous. Presently, c-Si and multi-crystalline silicon (mc-Si) rigid modules are the dominant BIPV products, along with amorphous silicon (a-Si) flexible modules. However, copper indium gallium selenide (CIGS) and cadmium telluride (CdTe) technologies are growing rapidly as well. The use of c-Si and mc-Si will change rapidly-and in ways that standard rigid modules cannot be used. The arrival of CIGS into the market, followed closely by the dye-sensitized solar cell (DSSC) and organic PV (OPV) products, will encourage an entirely new method and process of thinking about how to build, clad and color buildings.

Ouro Preto investe em tecnologia para construir novos caminhos além da mineração




Marcado para acontecer entre os dias 20 e 26 de junho, o Valin Week, evento organizado pelo Valin — Vale dos Inconfidentes, comunidade de inovação e tecnologia da região histórica de Minas, contará com palestras, workshops, mentorias e podcasts sobre o tema Food Tech. Toda a programação será gratuita, on-line e com foco no que tem sido produzido de mais moderno no mercado de tecnologia e de alimentação nas proximidades de Ouro Preto.

De acordo com o fundador e community leader do Valin, Kelson Douglas, a ideia de falar de tecnologia e comida está relacionada ao atual cenário da cidade. “Além de boa parte da arrecadação de Ouro Preto vir hoje de empresas de base tecnológica, como a fintech Gerencianet, o segmento de produtos agroecológicos também já se mostra importante para a economia local, ainda que pouco explorado”, diz.

Ainda segundo Douglas, que também é organizador do Valin Week, buscar formas de desenvolvimento que vão além da mineração é fundamental para o futuro da região. “Em momentos de crise no mercado de mineração, como durante a queda dos preços das commodities, em 2014, e na época do rompimento da Barragem de Fundão, em 2015, a economia de Mariana e Ouro Preto foi bastante impactada pelas demissões e paralisações das mineradoras, que também aquecem outros tipos de empreendimentos na região. No entanto, em todos estes momentos, os segmentos locais de tecnologia e de produção agroecológica continuaram de pé e contratando. São mercados que já se mostraram extremamente resilientes e importantes para o nosso caminho rumo à diversificação econômica”, completa.

Dentre os palestrantes do Valin Week, já foram confirmados nomes como o de Preta Emmeline, gerente regional da Techstars no Brasil, marca responsável pelo evento Startup Weekend no país, do escritor e sociólogo Carlos Dória, autor de “A formação da culinária brasileira”, e do empresário Giuliano Bittencout, CEO e fundador da BeGreen, a primeira fazenda urbana da América Latina.

Cidade histórica, atraente e inteligente

Figurando nos últimos anos nas listas de cidades mais inteligentes do país, Ouro Preto, que conta com diversas empresas de base tecnológica e startups em seu território, agora busca criar, manter e atrair mão de obra qualificada e investidores para o município. Para isso, além dos eventos do Valin, o poder público local tem se movimentado para tirar do papel o projeto de criação de um espaço de fomento tecnológico, assim como a política municipal de incentivo à inovação e à tecnologia, e ações que prometem tornar este importante destino turístico do país também um destino mais atraente para investimentos financeiros.

“Além de organizar Valin Week, temos conversado com o poder público e com as empresas locais para colocarmos de pé a primeira fase do Game Cluster Minas, um projeto para fomentar a criação de jogos digitais e analógicos no estado a partir de Ouro Preto e outras ideias que visam tornar a cidade mais atraente para quem vem de fora e quer, além de trabalhar e morar, encontrar aqui um leque de ofertas culturais tão boas quantas as que são encontradas em grandes centros urbanos, como Belo Horizonte“, explica Kelson.
