Abstract

The penetration of the photovoltaic systems in buildings increases rapidly. European Union and European governments have financed the installation of PV systems in buildings, which are connected to the grid, or not. For example, German government has supported a program to subsidise the installation of 100,000 grid connected PV systems in buildings. Furthermore, the Greek government has supported a program to subsidise the installation of PV systems in buildings by 70%. The estimated installed power was about 2 MWp.
