Abstract
The global trend on energy integration and building efficiency is making both researchers and developers look for technical solutions to use façade surfaces for electricity and/or domestic hot water production. These applications improve the energy performance of the building, but the integration of solar photovoltaic panels or solar thermal collectors into the façade may block visibility to the exterior and may prevent natural light from entering the building, both important comfort factors f...
