ABSTRACT

In this paper a novel vision of projecting is presented. Progressive technologies must be implemented in buildings design, technologies based mainly on sun power as the biggest energy source. Many of these systems are being researched at universities worldwide and results are beneficial. The term energetically active elements can be presented by the water filled window for example, which is used as a collector and window at the same time. Passive parts of the construction can be energetically active also, but the energy supplied to them is transferred from another source like geothermal drill hole, or a thermal collector. Our aim is to define the access to building design with these progressive elements and create energetically active buildings and houses.

Keywords: renewable source energy, active elements, passive elements, water filled window, sun power, heat gain reducing, water pre-heating, hybrid solar window
