SummaryThe residential area Hammarby Sjöstad in Stockholm has clear targets to be an environmentally sound living area where new environmental friendly building technologies should be demonstrated. That’s way the energy company Fortum together with the property developer JM decided to make an installation with roof integrated PV modules on two buildings in the area. The purpose with the project is apart from increasing the share of renewable energy to show that PVs can be integrated into the building in an architectural pleasant way and that it can be carried out as a natural part of the building process. The two systems are practically identical and consist of semitransparent glass-glass modules integrated in a sloping glass roof on top of the buildings. The systems have a peak power of 5,7 kW each.
