Abstract/Summary

In this chapter, we considered a building-integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) system, which was installed at Yasar University in Izmir, Turkey, within the framework of an EU/FP7-funded project and has been successfully operated since February 8, 2016. The BIPV system consists of 48 crystalline silicon (c-Si) modules in 4 rows and 12 columns, and the total capacity is 7.44 kWp. We applied the specific exergy costing (SPECO) method to the BIPV system for the first time to the best of the authors’ knowledge. In this regard, we briefly introduced the BIPV system in this study first. We then used the SPECO method for assessing the performance of the BIPV system. Exergetic costs associated with the generated electricity varied between 0.21 and 0.36 €/kWhex for the selected days, with an average exergetic cost of 0.368 €/kWhex for the whole year.
