|BI PV Project Summary|
|Name project||ISES SolarCarport|
|Year||2007-04-12 (Start operation date)|
|PV application||Inclined roof - integrated|
|PV power total||14 kWp|
|Summary||The International Solar Energy Society (ISES) was founded in 1954 with the goal of promoting the use of solar and renewable energy worldwide.
The ISES SolarCarport is a shining example of how renewable energy technology can be integrated in the built environment. The design by Freiburg-based solar architect Rolf Disch incorporates the following features:
- The hot-dip galvanized steel frame is 18 by 6.30 meters.
- Totaling an area of 113 m2, 108 photovoltaic (PV) modules manufactured by Kyocera, mounted on a diagonal inclination (6° south and 10° southeast), as to maximize sunlight exposure.
- The panels are attached directly to the steel carport frame using the SOLRIF® system.
With a peak capacity of 14 kWp of solar electricity, the SolarCarport will save around 8 tons of CO2 per year. This is a significant contribution to ISES goal of Villa Tannheim, our premises, becoming an example of a CO2 neutral historical building.|
