Share this Post:

The book present exemplary selected projects carried out in the Trentino-Alto Adige region (Italy) exploring building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) systems (i.e. modules, construction system, energy systems). 18 case studies are presented analyzing three aspects of PV integration: aesthetic, energy and technology. Each case study provides information on decision-making, design process and lessons learnt, ilustrated with pictures and architectural details.

 

The book aims to provide a source of inspiration and technical knowledge for architects and engineers towards increased use of PV in architecture based on the interviews performed to architects and engineers, experts from façade/glass manufacturers, energy consultants, BIPV experts, PV installers, electricians, private and public building owners and real estate companies.
