Abstract: Renewable Energy utilisation and correspondingly solar installations is not about fashion but about survival in todays world. Going Green has become the watchword. In such a scenario the use of solar photovoltaics for the building illumination or utilisation for domestic purposes can significantly reduce the loads on grids as buildings account for more than 30% of total energy consumption. But growing consumer interest in distributed PV technologies and industry competition to reduce installation costs are stimulating the development of multifunctional PV products that are integrated with building materials. This emerging solar market segment, known as building-integrated PV (BIPV), continues to attract the attention of many stakeholders. BIPV offers a number of potential benefits, and there have been efforts to develop cost competitive Products for more than 30 years. In This dissertation, we examine, analyse and evaluate the performance of BIPV. With a focus on residential rooftop systems, and explore key opportunities and challeng
