Building Integrated Photovoltaic for Energy Positive Buildings - Energetic Analysis

About this Research Topic

To maintain sustainable building interior environment, building sector consumes considerable amount of energy which is even higher than industry and transport sector. Benign energy generation and reduction of energy consumption can be achieved concomitantly by employing photovoltaic (PV) system into building. The inclusion of PV in the building envelops is known as building integrated PV (BIPV). The replacement of traditional building envelopes such as building wall, roof, and windows by BIPV is one of the most holistic approach. BIPV consists of transparent or semi-transparent PV, sandwiched between two glass panes which controls the entering solar heat and daylight to attain soothing comfort level while generating power to meet energy demand. BIPV made by crystalline silicon, thin film CdTe, CIGS, a-Si, DSSC and Perovskite type needs energetic analysis to understand the overall positive impact on building.

The evaluation of building energy demand mitigation by employing building integrated window or façade technology will be investigated in this Research Topic. These transparent or semitransparent BIPV Window or façade could tackle the building energy demand issue. Thermal, electrical and day-lighting analysis are essential to employ building energy simulation. Thus, the main aim is to gather submissions that will contribute to the knowledge in: a) heat transfer; b) thermal and visual comfort analysis; c) BIM based building energy simulation; and d) life cycle analysis and energy payback period. The improvement of building interior well-being thanks to the presence of BIPV is also welcome including, air quality and thermal comfort analysis.

This Research Topic aims to collect a series of novel approaches
· Thermal and optical model including PV system (c-Si, CdTe, CIGS, a-Si, Perovskite, DSSC, organic)
· BIM based building energy simulation
· Thermal comfort
· Visual comfort (Day-lighting, Glare, CRI, CCT)
· Life Cycle Analysis and energy payback period


Keywords: BIM, BIPV, LCA, EPBP, PV, Sustainable Buldings


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
