The THERMIE programme of the EU is concerned with the promotion of new energy technologies. In the area of renewable energy sources, solar thermal applications are of particular interest. This oral paper, presented at the World Tourism conference in Lanzarote in 1995, discusses the application of solar thermal technologies in the design of energy conscious buildings, particularly in regions where power supplies are lacking, or unable to cope satisfactorily with peaks of demand, such as in remote areas during the tourist season.
