Abstract

In this study, the embodied energy related environmental impact of the field test with a ventilated and non-ventilated BIPV roof segment is investigated and combined with the energy generation. The embodied energy calculation is based on the Inventory of Carbon and Energy (ICE) database of the University of Bath and the operational energy aspect is calculated with the SAM software developed by NREL.

The combination of operational and embodied aspects of energy generating applications such as photovoltaics can contribute to optimize design and realization of energy efficient buildings.
