Trombe Walls in Low-Energy Buildings: Practical Experiences; Preprint

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper


Low-energy buildings today improve on passive solar design by incorporating a thermal storage and delivery system called a Trombe wall. Trombe walls were integrated into the envelope of a recently completed Visitor Center at Zion National Park and a site entrance building at the National Wind Technology Center located at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory. NREL helped to design thesecommercial buildings to minimize energy consumption, using Trombe walls as an integral part of their design.
