Renewable Energy Applications for Existing Buildings: Preprint

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


This paper introduces technical opportunities, means, and methods for incorporating renewable energy (RE) technologies into building designs and operations. It provides an overview of RE resources and available technologies used successfully to offset building electrical and thermal energy loads. Methods for applying these technologies in buildings and the role of building energy efficiency insuccessful RE projects are addressed along with tips for implementing successful RE projects.
