The proposed grid-connected PV systems, have beeen considered as a significant contribution to the energy balance of the T.S.J. and A.P. buildings of the new City of Justice of Madrid.

Our solution, for the T.S.J., is to integrate the PV double glazing modules in the cladding panels of the court rooms roof and a vertical implementation of PV glass modules in the Southward facade. For the A.P. building, our proposal, is based on standard PV modules placed on alluminium or galvanised steel structure, tilted to Suth according to the natural inclination of the covering and a vertical implementation of PV glass modules in the Southward facade.
