Optimization of Single Slope Solar Still Geometry for Maximum Collected Solar Radiation

Mohd Zaheen Khan


In future we will not only consume energy, we will also partly produce our own energy need. Solar energy has been proven to be a valid strategy for producing on-site renewable energy. Planning for integrating solar energy in buildings involves many players and decision-making. In this article, a process map defining which decisions regarding solar energy needs to be discussed in which design stage, is presented. With the help of this process map, more informed decisions should facilitate the implementation of solar energy in buildings. Our way of thinking about energy and buildings is changing; initially buildings were solely considered to be energy-consuming, future buildings will be need to consume less energy while producing part of their own energy [1]. One way to produce renewable energy on-site is by means of active solar energy. By doing so, It will reduce the impact on the environment and reduce the dependence on imported energy. Current legislation is already directing towards such energy efficient and energy producing buildings, with the European directive for the energy performance of buildings [2] as the clearest example.
