Abstract/Summary:


What have we got in the built environment/our urban settings in terms of aspect of buildings and tilt of rooftops useful for BIIPV integration and how many could we evaluate as being as close as possible to PV [/ST] modules “ideal” placement (according to latitude, longitude, irradiation levels and other parameters) to enhance future important exploitation of the full potential of solar irradiation? The proposed study case is intended to be an easy built environment/urban setting [G.I.S. based] tool to aid decision makers such as urban planners, legislators, councillors, etc. to evaluate precisely and quickly, as well as cost-effectively, the most suitable locations to integrate photo-voltaic and solar thermal panels in highly urbanized settings, via the use of at least the following technological means: available shadow[s]-inclusive aerial imagery, photogrammetry and stereoscopy and Auto-cad and G.I.S. computer programs, all either merged, if possible, or efficiently managed together. The proposed “Perpendicular Line” method is useful to find unknown rooftop tilts and overshadowing end conditions. Buildings and urban forestry overshadowing effects are left for future research work to investigate.
