Abstract: Singapore faces a potential risk of an energy crisis due to its high dependence on imported energy. Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV) on building facades is an ideal alternate source of renewable energy because Singapore has abundance of solar irradiance and BIPV do not require extensive land area. This paper investigates the optimisation of BIPV shading devices on residential building facades (North and South) based on solar energy yield, daylighting and thermal heat gain. Shading device angle, spacing and length were simulated using DIVA-for-Rhino plugin and compared to determine the optimum BIPV. The results in different experiments show that 30° incline, closer intervals and long shading devices are preferred. Thus, it is concluded that the longest (3/3) 30° double BIPV shading device is the optimum for building façades. On the other hand, 3/3 0° single BIPV shading device is optimum for the highest floor.
