SummaryWithin the refurbishment of the building envelope of this multi family house there was integrated an inclined roof photovoltaic system into the roof. The specific design of the system allows a good back ventilation of the modules and results in a higher efficiency and thereby to a bigger energy yield. The project was one of the first projects in which SMC inverters were used. These inverters from SMA have a higher-than-average efficiency.
