Solar Energy Devices: As the time is proceeding further, the demands for energy are increasing. This is not only causing the depletion of energy sources but also increasing the threat for the future generations. So it is very important to have a sustainable development by the means of renewable sources of energy like Solar Energy. Sustainable Architecture aims to create environment friendly & energy –efficient buildings. This entails actively harnessing Sun’s energy to do the daily work.
It’s the most readily available source of energy. It is also the most important of the non-conventional sources of energy because it is non-polluting and, therefore, helps in lessening the greenhouse effect. It can be put to great use in our day to day life vis-à-vis the use of Solar Devices. This energy is used for: Cooking/Heating, Drying/Timber seasoning, Distillation, Electricity/Power generation, Cooling, Refrigeration, Cold storage
Here is a presentation on the Energy Devices and there importance.
