Abstract

The residential progressive electricity tariffs (RPET), which can affect the economic performance of the photovoltaic (PV) system, was recently amended in South Korea. In this regard, this study aimed to analyze the effect of RPET on the economic performance of the building-integrated photovoltaic blind (BIPB). This study was conducted in three steps: (i) development of an estimation model for the techno-economic performance of BIPB, (ii) establishment of representative household types, and (iii) impact analysis of RPET on the economic performance of BIPB. The main findings can be summarized as follows. First, the yearly based mean absolute percentage error of the developed finite element model was determined to be 4.54%. Second, considering RPET, the economic performance of BIPB was analyzed to be higher in the case of the households with a larger amount of electricity consumption. This study can provide decision-makers with intuitive results on the economic performance of BIPB considering RPET.
