Abstract: Integrated photovoltaic BIPV components and the usage of renewable energy is already a standard for reducing power consumption, but it would also be important knowing the possible contribution to improve comfort and health of building occupants and assessing an operational balance between the energy consumed and produced. This work describes the testing methodology employed by the authors to further study aspects linked to human comfort when using semi-transparent BIPV elements tested in a real setting and outdoor weather conditions. This research aims to analyse the whole set of issues that influence the global energy consumption in a building that use semi-transparent BIPV as a multifunctional building skin in order to improve quality in test and evaluation procedures of BIPV.
