Transforming the Urban Landscape: BIPV and Nature-Based Solutions for a Greener, New Era of City Living

This article explores the potential of these innovative technologies in shaping a new era of urban living that is both sustainable and harmonious with nature. It also delves into the collaboration of stakeholders in the real estate and finance sectors for urban transformation, as well as into the impact of the new IPCC report on urban planning and decarbonisation efforts, and key drivers and trends shaping the future of urban living.

Building-integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) solutions offer a unique opportunity to harness solar energy by incorporating photovoltaic modules into the fabric of buildings and urban structures, enabling them to generate clean, renewable energy on-site. This not only reduces the reliance on fossil fuels but also improves the aesthetic appeal of buildings and urban spaces.

On the other hand, nature-based solutions involve harnessing the power of nature to address urban challenges, such as stormwater management, enhancing green spaces, promoting biodiversity, improving air and water quality and climate adaption.
