Solar street art for a participatory energy transition (2023)
Presentation / Conference
Nicoletti, E. (2023, December). Solar street art for a participatory energy transition. Paper presented at Local Cultures – Global Spaces: Communities, People and Place, Virtual: New York, Hong Kong, Melbourne

The need to reduce global carbon emissions drives the renewable energy transition which can deeply transform cities. Façade retrofit plays an important role in improving the energy performance of the existing building stock. In renovation projects, t...

SOL-ART Visions (2023)
Exhibition / Performance
Nicoletti, E., & Upfest. (2023). SOL-ART Visions. [Exhibition]. Exhibited at Tobacco Factory, Bristol. 17 July 2023 - 31 July 2023. (Unpublished)

Building-Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV) technology enables the replacement of conventional building envelope materials with photovoltaics (PVs) that generate electrical energy from sunlight. PVs can be integrated visibly or invisibly into roofs and f... Read More about SOL-ART Visions.

Wind convection coefficient correlations for CPV modules (2013)
Journal Article
Adkins, D. A. (2013). Wind convection coefficient correlations for CPV modules. Conference Record IEEE Photovoltaic Specialists Conference, 3421-3425. https://doi.org/10.1109/PVSC.2013.6745183

Heat loss due to convection cooling from photovoltaic modules exposed to the external environment plays an important role in the study of photovoltaic design. It is well documented that thermal loss from external surfaces constitutes a large portion... Read More about Wind convection coefficient correlations for CPV modules.
