A. Scognamiglio,    ENEA, Italian National Agency for New Technologies, Energy and Sustainable Economic Development, Photovoltaic Systems and Smart Grid Unit, Portici (NA), Italy

Abstract

Photovoltaic technology is a key driver for achieving ambitious energy targets when designing a building. This technology is greatly suitable for the integration into buildings’ envelope surfaces, thanks to the technological features of the photovoltaic components available on the market. Moreover, the energy performance of photovoltaics is very good, also compared to other renewable technologies, and the dramatic decrease in costs makes this technology cost effective. ...
