Energy Efficiency and Thermal Comfort in Building-integrated Photovoltaic – Case Study

Co-authors PACURAR Ana Talida, TOADER Dumitru

Today the photovoltaic cells are used in different and complex domains. Buildings constitute a significant share in energy consumption in recent years the question of energy efficiency through reduced consumption of energy and ensure environmental comfort conditions. Photovoltaic cells replace the conventional materials in building domain and are used on building envelope (e.g. facades, roofs). The term for these photovoltaic cells is “Building-integrated photovoltaics” and in this paper is described one case and the photovoltaic cells used for this integrated system.
