3. A Review Study About Photovoltaic Systems and the Energy Payback Time Calculation for Selected Modules

Seyed Mohammad Emami Razavi; Mohammad Hossein Jahangir; Soroush Mousavi

Volume 6, Issue 3 , Summer 2019, , Pages 38-49

  The renewable energy can be utilized to satisfy the energy demand. Moreover, the solar energy as the most abundant energy resource among renewable energies plays a crucial role to provide the energy demand. The BIPV (building integrated photovoltaics) systems can be considered to supply the required ...  Read More
