The indoor thermal quality is one of the main study topics in the sustainable building field. The HCRI-BIPV smart window was developed to be used in the indoor environmental control on building living quality. This paper describes the 0.75 kWp capacity of grid-connected system by photovoltaic energy, which was controlled by indoor thermal environment. The monitoring research scale is the office time, whose data is recorded between 08:00 am to 17:00 pm. When the indoor temperature was arrived 26 °C or higher, the windows would be opened to cool down by the fresh air, which made the indoor temperature less than 10 °C and more. the smart window system has 130.01 wKh of the in six months research. For consideration of each evaluated factors, the HCRI-BIPV smart window not only offer the passive energy situation for its power loading but also improve the indoor thermal environment by natural ventilation. The research presented an intensely interesting data for Taiwan BIPV smart window development between the BIPV application and building energy design.
