The paper introduces a design for a reference PV module and a test reference environment for specific conditions under which PV modules can be applied when integrated as a cladding device into the building envelope. From the experience gained in several EU research projects, an improved design for the PV module and the test environment was made allowing to assess experimental data for electrical and thermal performance evaluation of hybrid PV systems giving input to modelling also. The test environment and PV module is presently used in the EC research project IMACT.
