Solar energy presents an energy source that can be used in different segments of our daily life. For the optimal use, it is necessary to know the basic features of solar radiation. There are many reasons for the exploitation of solar energy that can be found in the functioning of the facilities. By applying it, is possible to achieve energy efficient buildings while improving the use of the space comfort. Photovoltaic systems that are used as integrated systems within the sheath of a building can be fixed elements placed on constructive facade which simultaneously serve as elements for sun protection. The most important issues while projecting photovoltaic systems are the optimum orientation of the buildings and tilting angle of the photovoltaic modules as well as level of transparency. In this study an analysis is made about the optimal photovoltaic system which can be installed over constructive facade of offices /public administration building of city Gostivar. The analysis was conducted by using the software PVSYST. The most appropriate, i.e. the most optimal photovoltaic system is the system which consists of accordion profiled curtain wall with integrated transparent and semitransparent photovoltaic modules. The results of this study showed a maximum contribution of photovoltaic conversion, which also fits with the aesthetic characteristics of a facility. The active solar systems that integrate energy efficient facade structures, contribute to preserving the environment through the use of discretionary (green) energy resources.
