INTRODUCTION
 
T
he awareness on the significance of solar energy in building design and construction is gradually increasing. In new building designs or retrofitting the emphasis is placed on the effectiveuse of passive and active solar energy systems to partially or entirelycover demands in natural lighting, space heating and cooling, airventilating, domestic hot water and electricity.
T
he emerging concerns for environmental protection and globalenergy saving have introduced new architectural design rules for buildings, aiming at reduced energy buildings with effectiveintegration of several solar energy systems in combination withsatisfactory aesthetics.
P
hotovoltaic (PVs) that convert the absorbed solar energy intoelectricity constitute a new field for architects and engineers andrequire research on new forms of building façade, roof systeminstallation, efficient operation and other practical aspects. Alsointegrating Photovoltaic to the building is considered a viable option asin cities with great densities cannot have solar fields (lack of land).Even if they can afford large solar fields, certainly large amount ofelectricity is lost during distribution.
W
ith intent of thinking beyond oil and emerging awarenesstowards harnessing renewable sources of energy, Building IntegratedPhotovoltaic provides a great option. This is altogether a new conceptand idea. Hence, its viability in different parts of the world is a seriousconcern.
