Abstract

Industrial halls are characterized with their relatively high roof-to-floor ratio, which facilitates ready deployment of photovoltaic (PV) systems on the rooftop. However, actual performance of such systems might not always match the expected design performance, which is commonly based on rated rather than case-specific conditions. In order to promote deployment of PV systems, feed in tariff higher than the price of electricity is available in many countries to subsidize the high capital investment. With the help of energy performance simulation, this paper explores the cost benefit of the deployment of PV systems of different capacities for a few different application scenarios of industrial halls. The impact of various economic parameters is also investigated.
