  • SOLAR COLLECTORS IN ARCHITECTURE. INTEGRATION OF PHOTOVOLTAIC AND THERMAL COLLECTORS IN NEW AND OLD BUILDING STRUCTURES. PROCEEDINGS OF THE INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE HELD AT VENICE, MARCH 3-5, 1983.

Abstract

This book contains the proceedings of the International Conference Solar Collectors in Architecture which was organised by the Commission of the European Communities in Venice, Italy. These proceedings include all the papers presented during the oral and poster sessions and summaries of the various round table discussions. The intention of the conference was to concentrate on the problem of how to integrate solar collectors into the building structure. At present, in the European Communities more than 250,000 solar water heaters have already been installed without being always very satisfactory from an aesthetic point of view. This is also very true for photovoltaic panels which are also to be used progresssively in the habitat sector. The conference provided a proper forum for architects, engineers and decision makers to discuss the problems involved and to make recommendations for future improvement.
