About this book

The key objective of this book is to enhance the architectural quality, technical quality and economic viability of PV systems in the built environment, and assess and remove non-technical barriers for their introduction as an energy-significant option. The book introduces the holistic design process, PV technologies and integration concepts. With case studies from across the globe, experts in the field explore the potential of this technology, covering various applications (including non-building structures), relevant design tools, reliability, non-technical barriers and markets.
