In this paper, a parametric analysis of the configuration of a fix louvre-blade system with integrated PV coating is presented. The study evaluates different exploitations of solar energy focusing on the competing functions associated with the system in terms of electricity conversion, and daylight availability in the room. The methodology is applied to determine the effect of the geometry of the system (louvre-blade count and tilt angle) installed in a fictitious office room in a Nordic climate, considering climatic challenges such as low solar altitude angles, and large seasonal variations of solar irradiance levels incoming on the south-facing façade plane
