This paper presents the results of a 1-year monitoring period of the SCHOTT Ibérica multifunctional, coloured PV façade, pointing out the importance of evaluation of results through monitoring in the field of innovative sustainable solar architecture under specific regional conditions. The intention is to prove the effectiveness of the adopted solutions analyzing: the thermal behaviour of new developed coloured PV façade modules ASI THRU Colour; the thermal comfort of the interior space and the overall reduction of energy consumption of the building, thus reflecting the importance of the whole building approach of the project. The monitoring results of the SCHOTT Ibércia Solar Façade have to be understood as accompanying results of a project for the energetic refurbishment of an office building through the architectural integration of photovoltaics.
