Christoph Maurer, Mervyn Smyth

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

The economic benefit of BISTS (like BIPV) can be identified based on the direct economic impact, indirect economic impact, and qualitative value as outlined below.• Direct Economic Impact• Indirect Economic Impact• Qualitative ValueGiven the many variables and economic impacts, to physically quantify the value of any BIST system is a complex task. The following section sets out a general methodology, followed by a discussion of the challenges faced when applying the method.
