Abstract: In the global construction industry, sustainability is an issue of concern. One of the more commonly used renewable energy is solar energy as sunlight provides the best widely available resources. In Singapore, due to the limited renewable energy options, solar energy is still one of the most viable options for renewable energy, and there are many successful cases of Building Attached Photovoltaics (BAPV) projects in Singapore. However, due to limited land space in Singapore, there are many challenges involved in BAPV development. Conversely, Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) does not require additional land space. However, its implementation is weak, and little studies have been done in Singapore. This advocates the need to investigate the possibility of implementing BIPV in Singapore by identifying the different drivers, barriers, and actions. This research aims to identify significant drivers, barriers, and actions that are most relevant to the adoption of BIPV system using one sample t-test. To determine the differences in opinion from the different category of stakeholders, one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) was conducted, as the results may be influenced by their differences in perception, experience and attitude towards BIPV. Results showed that implementation of BIPV system is motivated by 10 drivers, 11 actions and impeded by 16 barriers. The top three drivers, barriers, and actions were identified and discussed. From there, it will provide a better understanding as to what are the most significant drivers, barriers, and actions. The reasons and insights were established and discussed. These findings can provide valuable information for stakeholders that intend to implement BIPV system in Singapore.
