In all over the world, huge parts of energy are consumed by buildings. Building integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) systems have attracted much attention with the purpose of providing energy demand of buildings. This paper introduces the examinations of BIPV system on a residential building under different climatic conditions of Iran by considering different PV modules. The building orientation has been analysed in order to find higher efficiency rate of PV modules through DesignBuilder. It was found the maximum rate of energy generation for all three cities occurs in south side of the building. Also for Tehran and Tabriz the minimum ratio of energy consumption is at the angle of 180° while for Bandar Abas it is in north side. Moreover, applying Cd-Te modules contribute to reducing payback time.
