Solar Buildings Program Technology Overview (Fact Sheet)

    Research output: NRELBrochure


    Today's buildings use a third of the energy currently consumed in the United States and are responsible for two-thirds of peak electrical demand. Because of this, the potential for using solar thermal technologies to reduce utility peak loads in place of conventional gas- or electric-based technologies is substantial.
