SolarHouse - Low in energy, high in comfort
Patent pending no. GCC 2007/9483
For the GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) countries, solar energy is the most accessible and economic alternative energy source. The disadvantage is that peak production is not according to peak-load. In summertime, cooling (AC) stands for more than 80% of the peak-load and the peak is normally between 4 pm to 8 pm. The peak production from solar cells is between 9 am to 3 pm. The energy needs to be stored from daytime to afternoon /evening. SolarHouse solves this problem in a simple and economic way.
The system has many advantages such as, self-sufficient, reliable improved components, noiseless, etc. The air-conditioning system, the main energy consumer, is powered by a solar photovoltaic power system which is integrated in the roof. The concept can be used in all kinds of building projects such as apartment blocks, office- and public buildings as well as private housing.
SolarHouse results in between 75% and 100% less electricity cost (dependent on the size of photovoltaic system) and between 75% and 100% saving on CO2 emission (dependent on the size of photovoltaic system).
