Photovoltaic systems (PVs) produce electricity directly from solar radiation and are becoming more widespread as their advantages become apparent. This new guide provides an overview of how PVs work and how they are incorporated in the design of buildings, giving designers a good idea of the variety and flexibility of PVs and of their design and aesthetic potential. Seven contemporary case studies illustrate the use and application of photovoltaic systems.
