Solar energy can be utilized in buildings in several ways. Often we differentiate between two main ways to utilize solar energy. Either by letting the solar radiation transmit through windows to passively contribute to space heating and offer daylight that can reduce the electricity need for lighting. Or by using active solar systems on the building envelope to produce solar heat and electricity that can be used to reduce the building’s need for non-renewable energy supply.
