RP1001: Air Handling Solutions, Integration Approaches and Building Design Considerations for PVT Roofing

Project leader name:

Project status: 
Current
Project period: 
02/2013 to 02/2016

This research aims to identify the best suited building typologies for PVT systems and to determine the air transport solutions which provide the greatest benefit at the minimum running cost and energy consumption for the PVT roofing in various climates of Australia. A major project aim is to integrate a PVT air system with the heating ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) system of two real buildings.

The outcome of this study will support the commercial implementation of PVT air systems in buildings in Australia either as stand alone systems, or as a supplement to conventional HVAC systems. Given that the project will be specific to PVT in Australia and be premised on the thermal constraints and design of the BlueScope Steel PVT system, BlueScope Steel will lead utilisation of the project IP.
