Abstract: EU funded “Building-integrated fibre reinforced solar technology” (BFIRST) project (Grant Agreement number 296016) was launched in 2012 by a consortium of EU companies, research institutes and universities, led by Tecnalia. The project, which will end in early 2017, is focused on the design, development, fabrication and demonstration of a set of standardized multifunctional photovoltaic products for building integration using an innovative manufacturing solution based on glass fibre-reinforced composite materials. This novel encapsulation technology is the basis for a wide range of new BIPV (building-integrated photovoltaic) products with enhanced building integration possibilities. The resulting modules present advanced characteristics in terms of flexibility of design, adaptability to non-planar geometries, structural properties and lightweight, among others. They provide additional advantages related to cost reduction in transport, manipulation, assembly and installation
