The trends show the renewable sources of energy are the way to go in the next decades. Along with the minimization of the carbon footprint, the use of modern technology brings other priceless advantages. In the newest edition of The Journal of Energy Technology, some crucial advantages were pointed out.
Heat production is the primary function of facade panels. Their use is not widely spread for now, however the experts believe, their time is coming soon, for they represent optimal solution in the field of cooling and heating of buildings. The main addition to the value of facade panels is a far better sound and heat isolation of the building.
Once the users start to realize the advantages of use of solar facade panels, the demand will surely rise. In fact, they are easy to combine with the existing systems, such as heat pumps, biomass systems or geothermal systems already installed in the building. This fact will also rise demand for the panels. The production of the panels allows mass production in great series, and in the future this could lead to a rise of employment as well as economic growth.
