Book Title: Photovoltaics in the Urban Environment: Lessons Learnt from Large-Scale Projects

Author: Bruno Gaiddon, Henk Kaan and Donna Munro

Book Description:

The editors, Bruno Gaiddon, Henk Kaan and Donna Munro, have assembled projects that showcase the use of solar technology in the interest of realizing communities that limit dependency on fossil fuels and the impact that building can have on the environment.  Importantly, the implications of photovoltaics in the built environment are considered related to design, construction and inhabitants. The projects highlight the benefits of integration at the scale of planning, buildings, systems, and details. Lessons learned bring to light opportunities and emphasize the importance of coordination.  I hope that this selection will inspire creative thinking in students from diverse backgrounds and foster a collaborative attitude in future practitioners.
