Studies on Prioritized Application of Building Integrated Photovoltaic/Thermal Double-Skin Facade for Commercial Building in Australia

Siliang’s research aims to investigate the overall performance of 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 and energy performances for commercial building, is of key interest.
