Estimation of KSU Avsar Campus BIPV Roof Potential

Saban Yilmaz, Hasan Riza Ozcalik, Emre Erkan


Since the need for energy constantly increases in today's world, renewable energy has been receiving increasing attention due to various factors such as scarcity of existing energy sources, high costs, global climate problems and so forth. Among these sources, solar energy has recently witnessed rapid developments due to its unlimited, carbon-free, environmental-friendly, cost effective and feasible nature. However, large lands are needed in order to install photovoltaic (PV) systems which are used to produce electricity from solar energy. Therefore, protection of arable lands and measurement of roof potentials are of vital importance in terms of reducing environment-friendly and renewable energy costs. In this study, potential values of building roofs in Kahramanmaras Sutcu Imam University (KSU) are calculated in detail thanks to various software and programs.

Keywords: Solar energy, BIPV, Photovoltaic, Solar Potential Estimation
