New Directions for Solar Energy Applications
Peter E. Glaser (1), James C. Burke (1)
The potential of solar energy applications is discussed against the background of future energy needs. Large-scale applications for energy production with wind, ocean thermal gradients, solar thermal power plants and photovoltaic energy conversion are reviewed. The energy conservation potential of near-term approaches including house heating and cooling is emphasized. Components, systems and cost comparisons are given and solar heating and cooling costs compared for various regions of the United States. The architectural approaches to incorporating solar heating and cooling systems in buildings are outlined. Specific programs designed to introduce solar house heating and cooling on a substantial scale are discussed.
