Solar house/demonstration building for the MW project

There are large energy efficiency gains to be made by retrofitting existing buildingswith new solar power systems. The solar house project was designed both to utilizean existing gravel separation sculpture, and to work in combination with the 1 MWToledo photovoltaic plant. The building would guarantee the required ambient conditions for seminars, by regulating the inside air temperature and providingpotable water. It would achieve this by using the massive existing building shell asa thermal mass in combination with a large-scale heat exchanger, and an artificialgraduated aquifer connected to the channel of the River Tajo.
