Abstract: This paper looks at what an architect is lacking currently to bring together a well planned photovoltaic integrated design and key issues to deal with in the process of drawing up a design proposal to the client The aim at the end of the day is to fulfill the role of an architect to the built environment by equipping oneself with enough skills and knowledge to push for photovoltaic integration as part of the green strategy. Through conducting a survey with respondents from architectural field consisting of working professionals as well as students, four main issues of concerns, especially to practicing architects then highlighted in the review, namely cost & energy output calculation, aesthetics, regulation and government subsidies. The lack in these four key areas are what the respondents feel causing the current industry to stay stagnant in the photovoltaic market. A different perspective from a PV supplier is also included in order to work out a set of documents for a presentation to promote PV integrated design. A set of general recommendation is outlined for the readers to tackle the main issues in a PV integrated design with comparison done for an existing project presentation to improvise and make the presentation better in order to convince the client to accept the usage of photovoltaic in a project.
