ASA Advisory Board
The ASA Advisory Board includes pioneers and industry leaders who all share a common interest in expanding the use of solar architecture. Interest in the building integration of photovoltaics, where the PV elements actually become an integral part of the building, often serving as the exterior weather skin, is growing worldwide. PV specialists and innovative designers in Europe, Asia, Middle East and the US are now exploring creative ways of incorporating solar electricity into their work. A whole new vernacular of “Solar Electric Architecture” is beginning to emerge.

Laurent Quittre President & Founder ISSOL
In 2005, Laurent founded ISSOL. As an outsider, he had the firm intention to do things differently in the PV sector. His business model is based on the architectural relevance that he wants to give to the PV technology. Laurent brings engineers and architects together. In April 2006, the PV glazing production facility of ISSOL is up and running. ISSOL starts to make remarkable BIPV projects with very famous architects. Today, Laurent is the president of a company that operates in the building sector offering highly-technological content solutions to make energy efficient buildings. Laurent likes saying that PV is not technology but a new construction material to change companies’ image and to increase their revenues.
