Studies on Optimal Application of Building Integrated Photovoltaic/Thermal System for Commercial Buildings in Australia

‘Studies on optimal application of building-integrated photovoltaic/thermal system for commercial buildings in Australia’ is the title of Siliang Yang’s thesis, under the supervision of Dr Francesco Fiorito, Scientia Professor Deo Prasad and Assistant Professor Alistair Sproul.
Yang’s research aims to investigate the overall performance of a building-integrated photovoltaic/thermal system integrated with a double-skin facade. The electrical and thermal performance of this novel building envelope, as well as the impact of this envelope solution on indoor thermal comfort performance for commercial buildings, is of key interest.
