Houben, J.J.M. Rovers, R. Vroon, Z.A.E.P. Geurts, C.P.W. Publication year 2018 Abstract To fulfil (part of) the electricity demand of buildings, photovoltaics (PV) can be added to the building envelope (BAPV) or integrated in the building envelope (BIPV). To assess environmental impact, Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) tools are applied. In this study, an LCA method is developed for BIPV configurations. The LCA is applied on three different PV technologies; Multi-Si, Amorf-Si, and copper indium gallium (di) selenide (CIGS), in three different BIPV rooftop configurations; non-ventilated, ventilated with an aluminum construction and ventilated Subject Buildings and InfrastructuresArchitecture and Building2015 UrbanisationBuilding Integrated PhotovoltaicsEnvironmental assessmentCarrying capacityPV technologiesLife Cycle Assessment To reference this document use: http://resolver.tudelft.nl/uuid:d8354f20-0069-4fef-959f-c16ab609c84e TNO identifier 844076 Source Sustainable Energy Technologies and Assessments, 31, 212-220 Document type article Files To receive the publication files, please send an e-mail request to TNO Library.
