The integration of grid-connected PV systems into buildings or public areas is one of the most usual applications of the photovoltaic solar energy in developed countries. The University of Jaén (Spain) is a pioneering public organism in the field of grid-connected PV systems, as it proves the milestones developed by its IDEA research group in the last decades. Recently, the University has proposed an ambitious project, the so-called UNIVERSOL project, where the necessary tasks will be carried out in order to evaluate the “photovoltaic potential” of the Campus of the University. This project is the previous step to convert this Campus in a big public area which combines the PV electricity generation with the common uses of a university place, in other words, to create a mixed space where the generation of knowledge can be combined with the electricity generation
