Abstract

This paper discusses one of the successful BIPV demonstration projects initiated and implemented by the private sector, namely NLCC Architects Sdn Bhd., in collaboration with a German research institution - the Fraunhofer Institute of Solar Energy. A "Prototype Solar House" was designed and subsequently built in Shah Alam, Selangor, Malaysia with 3 different grid-connected BIPV roof installations. The 3 different photovoltaic modules were amorphous silicon, mono-crystalline and poly-crystalline. The emphasis of the research was on the performance of the BIPV under local climatic conditions and the architectural integration. An innovative monitoring system was installed for the recording and assessment of all relevant operating parameters of the installations. The results of monitoring the whole systems revealed the various PV modules annual energy yield were: mono-crystalline silicon was 974.7kWh/kWp, amorphous silicon was 960.7kWh/kWp and polycrystalline silicon was 925.4kWh/kWp.
