The integration of PV modules in buildings is becoming day by day more important as in many countries policies are restricting the availability of large spaces for large PV plants installed on fixed racks. This delocalization of energy production on existing building surfaces (roofs and façades) present architectural and engineering challenges (e.g.Module/building material interface,working temperature etc.).
Ex-Poste building in the center of Bozen is an example of monitoring of a façade-integrated system.
The balancing of electric energy production and consumption of the buildings is controlled on a monthly and hourly basis respectively, including self-consumption rate and load duration curves.
Different scenarios for the maximization of the self-consumption of PV generated electric energy are analysed.
