ABSTRACT: Sustainability has an opportunity in the construction industry by the raising strong awareness of reducing C02 emissions to the atmosphere with some fixed objectives being renewable energies an essential part to materialize them. These energies can produce green energy during their use stage, but on the contrary some of them may tum this perspective into a less environmentally-friendly when considering their entire life cycle. This thesis explores the quantitative environmental impacts of different Building lntegrated Photovoltaic (BIPV) roof systems by the Life Cycle Assessment This is developed by evaluating scenarios depending on different roof covering materials as well as diverse active PV technologies regarding the C02 life-cycle footprint and its payback, with focusing on the current conditions of Denmark.
