Creating Solar heating system as sun shading

More Info


In November 2010, I started the present project within the chair of façade design group. In the design phase under the topic of CONCEPT HOUSE, I concentrated on thermal energy by water heating system, by means of solar evacuated tubes technology, in combination with sun shading system. During the design stage, different alternatives are proposed and compared. The most efficient alternative was evaluated by building physics rules and calculations and was then developed into the details level. The exterior façade of a building plays a fundamental role in energy regulating system. In future building, façade will play an increasingly large role in energy regulating systems. Therefore, during the process of the design, I looked for an energy generating technology in combination with the façade design to achieve a façade system that can integrate all essential installation components for zero-energy houses.
