This paper deals with both energetic and exergetic performance assessments of two combined systems as a whole. The first one is a Building Integrated Photovoltaic (BIPV) system while the second one is a wastewater (WW) Source Heat Pump (WWSHP) system. Both systems were installed at Yasar University, Izmir, Turkey within the framework of EU/FP7 and the Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey (TUBITAK) funded projects, respectively. The BIPV system was commissioned on 8 February 2016 and has been successfully operated since then while the WWSHP system was put into operation in October 2014. The BIPV system has a total peak power of 7.44 kW and consists of a total of 48 Crystalline Silicon (c-Si) modules with a gap of 150 mm between the modules and the wall, and a peak power per PV unit of 155 W-p. The WWSHP system consists of three main subsystems, namely (i) a WW system, (ii) a WWSHP, and (iii) an end user system.
