Description

Intensive PhD training school delivered as part of COST Action TU1205. The aim of this COST Action is to foster and accelerate longterm progress in the integration of renewable energy systems in buildings across Europe. The key objective of BISTS is to replace the current practice of adding Solar Energy devices
onto buildings and ensure the devices are fully integrated as part of the roof, wall, window or shading. This will be achieved by market evaluation and expectation, design, development, characterization and simulation of building
integrated STS solutions and by addressing concerns that this system integration will generate. Coupled with aesthetic and architectural challenges, many practical issues need to be resolved and this requires a multi-disciplinary involvement of
experts in the fields of renewable energy systems, architecture and materials.
