Passive and active solar strategies together with the adoption of energy conservation measures and the integration of new materials and technologies can lead to dramatic reduction of 75-90% in the energy consumption in domestic buildings.
The objective of Task 13 of the IEA’s Solar Heating and Cooling Program was to advance solar building technologies and demonstrate this potential by designing and then constructing buildings that met very low energy consumption targets while maintaining a good indoor climate.
This new, revised second edition of "Solar Energy Houses" presents the findings of the Task 13 experts and now includes the results of the monitoring program, conducted to determine the effectiveness of the techniques and strategies adopted.
The book will be extremely valuable to all architects and planners working either to design domestic buildings with lower energy usage, or simply to see a wider application of the strategies and technologies now available to achieve this.
