Abstract

This paper examines the potential for PV to improve the performance of primary schools in London. Disaggregate data including energy use is compared with modelled PV generation, showing that electricity demand could theoretically be met in 59% of the schools investigated. The impact of several key factors is then considered, including architectural heritage, building age and form. The results show that the greatest PV potential exists in newer schools, as well as those that are shorter and with less dense forms.
