Renewable energy has become very important both worldwide and on the European market, mainly due to the decrease in the photovoltaic (PV) system cost (up to 75%) during the last decade. PV installations worldwide have reached 227 GW at the end of 2015 with a predicted extra 50 GW of new installation in 2016. Residential systems are a key element in the success story of PV rooftop installations. This chapter discusses the design of residential PV installations, with focus on rooftop grid-connected systems, which represent the vast majority of small-scale PV systems.
