Installation of Photovoltaic Panels on Historic Buildings and Heritage Areas: Lessons to Learn and Consideration for North Cyprus
Keywords:Heritage areas, Historic buildings, Installation, North Cyprus, PV panels
The preservation of heritage areas and historic buildings and the adoption of new technology to reduce energy losses in these buildings are simultaneously crucial. In various cities around the world, the installation of photovoltaic panels (PV panels) on historic buildings has expanded recently. This study focuses on examining the standards and guidelines for installing PV panels on historic buildings and heritage areas to investigate the key considerations and requirements that are necessary for successfully integrating PV panels into historic buildings. Furthermore, it examines the possibility of installing PV panels on historic buildings, taking into account the specific conditions of Northern Cyprus. Then some recommendations are presented for the development of a planning guide for the installation regulations of PV panels for historical buildings in Northern Cyprus to facilitate coordinated cooperation between cultural heritage areas and PV panels, ensuring the preservation of valuable historic buildings while using sustainable energy solutions for the future.
