Abstract

The paper outlines the basic information on photovoltaic conversion of solar radiation on solar cells made of different materials (monocrystalline, polycrystalline, amorphous silicon, etc.), as well as on building integrated photovoltaic systems (BIPV). Moreover, examples of the use of solar cells in contemporary architecture worldwide, Serbia and the Republic of Srpska are given. In conclusion, it is emphasized that the solar cells are increasingly used as façade elements and a source of electrical energy in the building sector. In future cities solar cells and BIPV systems will play evermore an increasingly significant role in façade forming and electrical energy generation in the residential and other types of objects.
