In this study, a comparative outdoor test of an innovative BIPV solar tile with a well-established market product is conducted. Two mock-up structures have been built to generate further insights into BIPV efficiency as a function of operative temperatures and back-module ventilation. The two small-scale installations include a complete roof construction package on which the BIPV modules are integrated as a full-roof solution. The test-stands are equipped with a monitoring system aimed to assess the operating conditions both in terms of temperatures and PV performances. Along with the thermal and yield monitoring, the effect of temperature and natural ventilation on the PV production is studied through the identification of a thermal model and the simulation for one of the studied configurations.
