Company: Bluefin Housing, Birmingham, United Kingdom.

Project work: Bluefin Housing contracted Ebbah Sustainovation to develop a technical specification and detailed design for building energy using solar photovoltaic power.

Client Requirement

The client needed to install a solar photovoltaic power system on a building to provide a NetZero energy supply. The building is primarily used as a classroom and has other offices.

Approach

Used the building site plan to gather details such as building dimensions and footprint. Also, all specifications of the solar power system, such as inverters, solar panels, batteries, and other balance of power systems, were used to quantify the overall building energy requirements. An economic appraisal of the building energy system was produced using PVSyst specialist software.

Result

A technical specification document is developed for the detailed design for building energy using solar photovoltaic power. As a result, the energy yield is determined, and the cost-effective design option is selected.
