BIPV Technology and A New Business Model

The construction industry is relatively slow-moving for new product development and innovation compared to other sectors. Most innovations have been “incremental” in their approach—taking one product with a single function and making it slightly better. Mitrex introduces truly affordable, building integrated photovoltaic (BIPV technology) cladding and glass products. They have dual functions—to clad the building, […]
