The need for a more sustainable built environment is urgent and requires cost-efficient, smart and integrated renewable energy solutions. The surfaces of the buildings and environments we live and work in represent an enormous potential to generate sustainable energy. In order to exploit these surfaces to their full potential, it is essential to be able to predict the energy yield of a specific system. In the past years we have developed an aesthetic PV solution for façades that enables both visible and invisible integration. Recently these panels have been mounted on several façades in the Netherlands. A detailed monitoring system provides input parameters for a sophisticated model that calculates the energy yield of the system. The model results show a good overlap with the measurement data, allowing the model to be used for optimization of similar systems on other façades.
