The BIPV energy performance research is trying to gain the net zero energy targets in Taiwan. The study has been renovating building skin system by PV modules to replace the roof, wall and window. This paper aims to use the solar panels replace the building materials and provide the electrical power to the building energy consumptions. There are four types photovoltaic systems were used in the project, which include three silicon base and a thin film base. The total power capacity was 8.04kW that can offer the annual electrical output was 5636kWh in each year by PVSYST simulation. The indoor environmental control was counted the energy load by ECOTECT software. The indoor power consumptions with air condition, lighting, electric equipment were predicted and the annual power consumption was 12297.6kWh. In this case, the self-ratio of renewable energy system is 45% in the BIPV study system.
