Research on Integrating Hot Water System Heated by Solar with High-Rise Residential Building


Article Preview

There are problems of resource allocation and integrating technology with building when utilizing solar energy in a high-rise residential building. In this paper, a new 34-storey residential building with solar energy design is taken for example to probe new ways for solar collectors, energy saving and distribution system. A new system is designed to solve the following problems: inadequate roof area for collecting solar energy, energy loss by long-distance heat transporting, and defacing building appearance by setting solar energy facilities on building surface. And to archive the aim of suitably using solar energy, the integration of solar energy facilities with building facade is also discussed.
