Abstract

Here are two examples that exemplify the extremes of challenges for BIPV placement on a building. The Solar Office, Doxford International Business Park, a 73 kWP BIPV façade (Fig. 3.3), is highly optimised for solar collection: facing south, next to a car park, so free from any shading, and with a façade tilted 30° back from vertical for a better angle to the noon sun.

Looking north across the car park to the 73 kWP BIPV façade of the Solar Office, Doxford International (UK).
