Abstract: This paper presents the assessment of experimental data for electrical and thermal performance evaluation of photovoltaic (PV) systems integrated as cladding components into the building envelope, giving input to modelling and analysis work. From the experience gained in several EU research projects, an improved design for a common Test Reference Environment (TRE) has been developed. This specific design of the PV module and TRE makes it possible to study, through electrical and thermal energy flow analysis, the effect on electrical performance of using different materials for PV modules and the construction design of claddings. The results for a glass-glass PV module with forced ventilation are presented.
