Abstract: Existing buildings formed the largest proportion of the total Singapore’s building stocks. The target of Singapore is to have at least 80% of Singapore’s buildings be turned green by 2030. With the uprising trend and advance technology, photovoltaics panels are highly encouraged to be used to harvest energy from the conversion of UV from the sun. One of the possible way to do this is to have the façade of buildings be cladding of PVs also known as building integrated photovoltaics. With this thought and possibility in mind, this thesis is inspired to study the heat transfer of BIPV and its effect to ETTV. Experiments were carried out with specimen block wall with the installations of different cladding panels as well as BIPVs to study the temperature profile of the various scenarios. The objective is to investigate the performance of BIPVs as compared to cladding panels and if BIPV can be an effective replacement of typical cladding panels. Utilizing the hot box measurement set up by SERIS, specimen autoclaved aerated concrete block wall is installed with different cladding panels, insulated and uninsulated, and photovoltaics panels. Temperature measurements were carried out at the different elements of the setup such as surfaces of the block wall and external panels. This allows better understanding of the performance of the different panels tested for. Based on the experiments carried out, it was noted that external cladding PVs have a higher efficiency in reducing heat transfer from the external as compared to the typical powder coated steel cladding panel. As a whole, the experiment has proved that PVs or BIPV is a very effective replacement of cladding panels. BIPV can reduce SHGC significantly and internal temperature reducing the overall building cooling load. On top of savings, it can also help to gain energy by harvesting electricity from converting the UV from the sun.
