HOUSE DESIGN Our focus is going to be on 1.architectural design of the house to make the maximum use of the sun energy. Such as: Location Shape Orientation
HOUSE DESIGN 2.Environmental friendly building materials 3.Economic Consideration
Environmental Impact and Safety When analyzing Environmental Impact in House Design we must take into account: Impact produced by the PV Energy System Impact produced by the Materials used to build the house
Environmental Impact and Safety Impact produced by the Building Materials: We can reduce the impact by using: A suitable material for the local climate. workersinhabitants the planet A healthy and safe material for the workers, for the inhabitants and for the planet.
Environmental Impact and Safety …… by using: A durable and easily maintained material. The material efficiently (little transportation and processing, recyclable content) An easily recyclable material.
Environmental Impact and Safety Green Building Materials Interesting examples of Green Building Materials: -Straw Bale
-Straw Bale * Great insulation properties * Availability *Non-toxic *Needs little processing
Environmental Impact and Safety -Recycled Cotton/Polyester insulation: * Made from blue jeans scraps * Avoid using fiberglass * Safe product for the workers
Environmental Impact and Safety -Autoclaved Aerated Concrete: * High thermal insulation * Completely recyclable * Very durable material * High indoor air quality
How about is the solar energy of usage present status. From the 1970s, many million of dollars were invested by governments,private institution, architectural and solar equipment firms toward the development of practical
Environmental Benefits Natural disaster costs soar to another world record. Violent weather cost the world a record $130 Billion in the first eleven months of 1998- more money than was lost from weather related disasters from 1980 to 1990 ($82 Billion).
Environmental Benefits Researchers from the Worldwatch Institute and Munich Re blame deforestation and climate change from Earth warming for much of the loss. The previous one year record was $90 Billion in 1996. Source - Associated Press, November 28,1998.
Environmental Benefits Reducing the carbon emission Rising carbon emissions were once favorably looked upon as a measure of economic growth and development. but now it doesnt Solar energy has no carbon emission and other pollutant gases
Solar energy benefit to environment and mankind Solar energy will become a form of Shell shock Shell Oil predicts that 50% of the world's energy will come from renewable sources by 2040.
Solar energy benefit to environment and mankind Solar energy is a clean, safe, renewable resource, that's pollution- free and protects the environment for future generations.
GERMANY:TAX-RETURN The solar products supplier promise to maintain the same price for 20 years industry can get the return of about 50 euro cents from the government per kilowatt-hour of electricity output composed of low-interest loans for 100,000 roofs program
Conclusions The initial or the up-front cost of installing solar panels is very high therefore, making it hard for people to make decision whether to buy it or not. However, putting it together with the design and building of the house make more economical and competitive not even considering the environmental benefits.
Conclusions Further saving could be made by using solar roofing instead of normal roofing materials. The cost of roofing your house would be part of the cost of the solar energy.
Conclusions Further more, professor Vivian Alberts who works at the University of Johannesburgs department of physics, has developed a revolutionary process to produce solar panels using CIGS (copper-indium-galliumdiselenide) instead of silicon. The final product is expected to cost a quarter of the price of current solar panels.
