Commercialisation

The construction of the passive solar collection system is as much a secondary glazing project as a renewable energy installation. As most secondary glazing installers also construct conservatories this solar energy capture system would provide an ideal added value product for installers who were diversifying by addressing the green energy market.

Air conditioning engineers already supply systems that manage the flow of air around buildings. Passive solar energy would add value to air conditioning systems and could also be used to upgrade existing installations.

The third area where this technology is relevant is in building design with passive solar heating becoming an important component within a zero energy building.
