Abstract

Shading devices are an important aspect of many energy-efficient building design strategies: they can help in reducing the amount of energy required for cooling and artificial lighting. Shading devices can also integrate photovoltaics: the performance of the PV is influenced by the tilt angle and especially by any partial shading that can be caused by surrounding buildings. This paper presents a combined study of building energy consumption and the electricity production from a PV system integrated into a shading device for different surrounding building configurations and tilt angles.
