Factors that power up building-integrated photovoltaics

■ Engineering & Technology / Factors that power up building-integrated photovoltaics New research suggests variables end-users should consider before installing photovoltaic blinds. Solar photovoltaic (PV) energy is a sustainable and clean energy source that permits distributed generation and provides more innovative electrical infrastructure. Building-integrated PV (BIPV) systems appeal to end-users in highly populated urban areas who want to achieve zero-energy buildings; however, their technical and economic performance depends on variables such as equipment design and client goals. Professor Taehoon Hong of Yonsei University led the research, collaborating with Choongwan Koo, Jeongyoon Oh, and Kwangbok Jeong to improve the understanding of the nonlinearity of the shading … Continue reading Factors that power up building-integrated photovoltaicsRead More →
