Abstract : Technological advancement in building incorporated photovoltaic (BIPV) has transformed the façade of the building into a generator powered by renewable energy sources. The BIPV facades are designed to provide energy production alongside traditional design goals such as aesthetics art and environmental control. However, the problem is that architectural design goals sometimes conflict with energy performance such as visibility and daylight versus maximum power output. In this context, the use of renewable energy sources such as solar energy seems to be worthwhile as they are numerous and have enormous environmental and economic prospects. This study aims to provide a new entrance to building design by enhancing a façade with photovoltaic to form aesthetic appeal and construction by studying the current situation of energy consumption. This research will give access to afford sustainable planning decisions that the use of photovoltaic energy in building façades is architecturally feasible to give an elegant design that arises from engineering creativity, satisfies the requirements of efficiency and economy, and is also elegant. in addition to that using a photovoltaic system is the best decision for different building types to become more self-sufficient and, ecofriendly, decrease carbon footprint and reduce monthly electricity bills.
