Alessandra Scognamiglio and Harald N. Røstvik Photovoltaics and zero energy buildings: a new opportunity and challenge for design Progress in Photovoltaics: Research and Applications 21
There is a need to rethink the way PV is used in relation to ZEBs and other buildings. With tall buildings, or in dense urban areas, wall and roof integration may not be sufficient to achieve a Net Zero Energy Balance. The PV system will, in numerous cases, have to extend beyond the building's footprint. The design challenge hence moves from the architectural to the landscape or even to the urban scale. This encourages new research in order to take up this challenge. Image A. Scognamiglio.
