Building Integrated Solar Technology
(1000 items available)
The integration of solar power systems into buildings is no longer just a technical matter, but also a structural and aesthetic challenge. This book provides the necessary expertise for this purpose. In addition to basic physics and technological developments in photovoltaics and solar thermal, the publication offers abundant advice from architects on how to successfully integrate solar systems into buildings. A number of chapters address the economical and ecological deployment of solar technology as well as issues of building laws and the preservation of listed buildings. Illustrated and expanded by numerous photos and detailed project documentation, Building-Integrated Solar Technology not only demonstrates the tremendous variety of construction tasks and integration possibilities, but also shows that self-sustaining buildings in terms of energy can also become a powerful architectural and cultural asset.
