Abstract

The University of Southampton has been conducting research into alternative energy systems and environmental studies for many years. In 1994, an opportunity arose to expand such activities to test large scale building integrated photovoltaic technology. Building 2 on the University's Highfield Campus was earmarked for renovation both internally and externally. The south elevation of this building was clad with small ceramic mosaic tiles (20 × 20 mm) which needed either repair of replacement. The University welcomed the opportunity to combine the refurbishment of the facades with the installation of the PV cladding. This, at the time, had the added advantage of combining University requirements with the aim of the UK photovoltaic community to have an installation and an exemplar PV system for test and development on the south coast of England. The aim of such an installation was to address the paucity of information concerning the use and implementation of PV technology, enabling UK industry to produce quality products in what is perceived to be a globally growing market
