The use of nanocoatings with spectral selective properties on building windows or solar cells is an area of increasing interest. The current study examines the effects of using an Indium Tin Oxide (ITO nanocoating on PV glass and windows. The spectral transmittance of the ITO nanocoating is measured and shows to cut off infrared radiation. Experimental results with a model test house showed lower inner temperatures achieved with the ITO nanocoated glass than when using the reference glass. On the other hand, simulation and experimental results showed a reduction in PV temperature when using the ITO nanocoating as a solar cell cover glass, but also an unwanted reduction in short-circuit current. Thus, for photovoltaic applications further improvement of the ITO nanocoating transmittance in the visible and near infrared region is required.
