ABSTRACT: The use of photovoltaic systems, through the Net Metering System, existing in the Brazilian Electric Sector, can contribute significantly to the environment. Once integrated into the building envelope, generating energy near the center of consumption, prevent new and existing buildings consume energy from non-renewable sources. In this sense, this work is to analyze the best way to integration and adaptation of a photovoltaic system connected to the network at building of Interdisciplinary Center of Energy Planning (NIPE) at State University of Campinas, located in Campinas – SP, Brazil. Evaluates the potential for electricity generation and most efficient technology in terms of architectural volumetry, existing shaders in building envelope and the environmental impacts caused by the adoption of different types of cells (Monocrystalline, Polycrystalline, Copper-Indium- Gallium-Selenium – CIGS and Cadmium Telluride- CdTe). They are used the software Sketchup and Radiasol for shading analysis and potential for electricity generation in demand peaks. The results show that the power supply tracks are up to 45%, representing a significant reduction of the total energy consumed by the building.
