Performance of Energy Activated ETICS Applied in the Urban Environment of Street Canyons

Dominika Knera, Dariusz Heim, Anna Wieprzkowicz

Abstract: The performance of a BIPV (Building Integrated Photovoltaic) façade located in an urban environment depends on the characteristics of the surrounding urban environment, which affects the total solar radiation reaching the photovoltaic panels. The analysis of the impact of the different urban canyon types on the total solar irradiance incident on the BIPV façade which influences its performance. The geometry of the urban canyon has significant impact on the distribution of solar radiation, the wider the urban canyon, the higher the total annual solar irradiance incident on the BIPV facade. The material properties of surface of urban canyon have lower impact on the solar radiation distribution.
