Title: Photovoltaics: integration into buildings

Ref Code: DG438
Authors: P Baker and C Stirling

Abstract1: Electrical power from solar energy has been investigated and used in small-scale applications for many years. Environmental considerations now make it imperative to apply the technology to buildings. This Digest describes photovoltaic options and installations in relation to standards and regulations, compatibility with other building elements, safety and ease of maintenance. It will help architects, designers of building components, specifiers and owners to identify the main issues and practicalities of using photovoltaic systems to supplement conventional electricity generation for buildings.
