Abstract The distributed photovoltaic (PV) system is a recently emerging concept in the building industry. The system is a promising energy source that could potentially achieve renewable energy targets and carbon reduction strategies. However, there is a significantly less growth in deploying distributed PV system in the building industry. The deployment context is a complex system that interrelate diverse technology artefacts, multiple stakeholders, policies, etc with their attributes. Therefore, the PV deployment requires not only the technical fact but also the social, structures and dynamic interactions. In this regard, the paper focuses to explore the deployment of grid connected distributed PV through a dynamic socio-technical perspective, with a particular focus on identifying a complex and dynamic environment through an extensive literature review
