The Architectural Solar Association is leading the global BIPV Movement
Our members represent the most advanced developments in the BIPV industry. We all share the common goal of transforming building facades and other architectural surfaces into generating assets.
By joining ASA, your organization will connect with the best minds in the industry. You'll have access to the premier Architectural Solar global forum to highlight your businesses’ featured projects and offerings.
The ASA advocates for the development of standardized solar-integrated building materials, increased BIPV education, friendlier legislative regulations and building and energy codes, and modernized solar architecture design specifications as they relate to integrating solar into the architectural envelope.
From our point of view, the architectural solar movement has 4 significant barriers.
Lack of Building Industry Integration
Lack of Economic Clarity
Code & Standards must Evolve
Lack of Financing Solutions
ASA focuses on breaking these barriers. If your business shares similar values, your support and participation is essential for achieving our common goals.
