Practical Applications for the Built Environment
By Lars Andren
Solar energy will play
an important role in our future energy supply, to the advantage of both
the environment and the economy. This book focuses on water-based solar
heating technology, presenting basic principles on solar radiation and
the solar heating system, including details on orientation and output,
sizing, the solar collector, the solar circuit, heat exchangers, heat
stores and overall system technology. A range of practical applications
are described, such as multi- and single-family dwellings, pools, camp
sites, sports facilities, schools and industry. The potential and
diversity of solar energy is made clear with additional sections on
solar electricity, passive solar and solar air heating.
