Ensuring Place-Responsive Design for Solar Photovoltaics on Buildings

Over recent years there has been a large increase in the installation of solar photovoltaic (PV) systems on buildings. While technical guidance on installing solar is available (in this publication, ‘solar’ refers exclusively to solar PV technologies), as well as some guidance on installing solar on heritage buildings, there is little overall guidance on the design of solar PV for conventional buildings, and with regard to landscape and visual impacts. This is the case both for the built and the natural environment.
