Utilization of solar energy for building operation

Guan, Lisa and Chen, Guangnan (2009) Utilization of solar energy for building operation. In: 6th International Symposium on Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning (ISHVAC 2009), 6-9 Nov 2009, Nanjing, China.


Abstract

In face of the increasing concern on global warming and climate change, the interests in the utilization of solar energy for building operation are also rapidly growing. In this paper, the importance of using renewable energy in building operations is first discussed. The potential use of solar energy is then reviewed. Possible applications of solar energy in building operation are also discussed, including the use of solar energy in the forms of daylighting, hot water heating, space heating and cooling and building-integrated photovoltaics. Finally, the research activities in the utilization of solar energy for space cooling at QUT are highlighted.
