Abstract

Use of renewable power technology in urban area can help the buildings to minimize the carbon footprint, meet the electricity needs and achieve the nearly zero-energy building. In this study, the design results of the rooftop grid-tied PV power system with the capacity of 56.7kW for a research institute building in Vietnam are analyzed. The study results have calculated the electricity generation, performance of the rooftop grid-tied PV power system as well as reduction potential of the amount of CO2 emitted into the environment. The design results of the rooftop grid-tied PV power system for a research institute building will be compared with the actual power generation results of an installed rooftop grid-tied PV power system at a building of General Directorate of Energy - Vietnam Ministry of Industry and Trade in the same city.
