Designing With Solar Power encapsulates five years of work by over thirty international experts from the fields of research, development and design. Photovoltaic (PV) power’s potential for wide distribution makes it a unique and novel energy source that can be embedded within the fabric of individual buildings, shifting power generation away from being large scale and regionally located. As a consequence, an abundantly available, clean and silent electrical supply can be introduced into cities, towns and built-up areas. This in-depth highly illustrated publication shows a clear path to the way of designing with photovoltaic in buildings and is very important for any designer or individual that wishes to keep up with this new and exciting technology.
