RenewableEnergyStocks.com (RES), an investor and industry news portal for the renewable energy sector, and HomelandDefenseStocks.com (HDS), a news portal for the security industry, report on Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV), technology that allows solar photovoltaic material in the form of photoelectric panels to be incorporated into the design of buildings, providing additional sources for power production and a means of pursuing energy security and protecting infrastructure. Firms developing BIPV technology such as XsunX, Inc. (OTCBB: XSNX), a developer of PowerGlass™, a proprietary process turning the glass skin of modern high rise and commercial buildings into massive power generating systems and EPOD International, Inc. (OTCBB: EPOI), a developer of solar power storage and management technologies, see considerable industry opportunity on many levels. In addition, Barnabus Energy, Inc. (OTC BB: BBSE), an energy company focused on low risk development opportunities, is working towards alternative methods of power generation for purposes such as industrial parks.
Report Excerpt: Building Integrated Photovoltaics Working Towards Energy Security and Infrastructure Protection
By Ann-Marie Fleming
As terrorist attacks continue and natural disasters as well as power failures place our energy supply and infrastructure at risk, technologies such as BIPV represent a viable opportunity for protection against the vulnerability of the existing electrical grid. In addition to long term cost savings and the environmental benefits that solar power technology provides, Building Integrated Photovoltaics allows for on-site energy production and storage, providing an excellent source for distributed energy without dependence on vulnerable centralized electricity plants and grids. "BIPV technologies provide a means for integrating environmental values with economic vitality," stated Tom Djokovich, XsunX's CEO. "One of the added benefits in producing clean power on site is the potential for BIPV technologies to also work together to help build energy independence and energy security in the form of distributed power networks. In today's energy intensive economies, access to power has become one of the primary aspects in creating and maintaining economic vitality." Utilizing a distributed power source creates an environment that is less susceptible to massive outages due to hostile threats, natural disasters and blackouts, while building alternatives to dependence on foreign resources.
Overall, as rising energy prices, increasing power demands and security risks to our resources and infrastructure continue, many are turning to alternative solutions for energy protection and independence through technologies such as BIPV. As technologies evolve, energy production can be efficiently and effectively incorporated into our daily lives as commercial buildings, homes, and industrial structures can become independent power generators.
