The County House Frankel is located in Hampshire, England for a retired client who chose a large construction site with a perfect and beautifully landscaped garden along with mature trees for their eco-building design in South East England. The barn style house is a nature-conscious, future-oriented and energy-efficient design. The architect-designed Country House Frankel is distinguished precisely by these three properties. The modern barn has triple-glazed and aluminum-clad wooden windows which allow plenty of light into the barn style house and give the residents the feeling of always being a part of nature. This is also enhanced by the special corner window which offers marvellous vistas. The complete-solution organic values of the eco-building ensure a particularly healthy climate.
Solar energy is energy that is produced by the sun’s light, photovoltaic energy and its warmth which is solar thermal. Solar energy is inexhaustible and renewable since it comes from the Sun. Solar energy is harnessed by using panels and mirrors which are placed on your eco building or cabin building design. Photovoltaic solar cells convert the natural sunlight directly into electricity by the photovoltaic effect, by which certain materials absorb the photons otherwise known as light particles and liberate the electrons, thereby generating an electric current. Solar thermal collectors use solar panels or mirrors to help absorb and concentrate the Sun’s heat, then transfer it to a fluid and conduct it through pipes to use it in eco-buildings and installations, and also for electricity production also known as solar thermoelectric.
There are many benefits of solar energy that make it one of the most promising forms of energy. It is renewable, available planet-wide and non-polluting, it contributes to sustainable development and job creation wherever it is installed. Likewise, the simplicity of solar energy technology makes it ideal for use in rural or areas that are difficult to access that are isolated from the network. Solar energy is also useful for helping to generate electricity on a large scale and injecting it into the network, especially in areas where the meteorology provides for lots of hours of sun per year. Solar capture modules are quite easy to maintain, which, along with the continuing, sharp reduction in the cost of the photovoltaic cells, explains the future favorable outlook for solar technology. Solar plants also do not emit any polluting gases and are silent.
Another benefit of energy that is borne from the Sun is in its ability to generate local wealth, by lessening the energy dependence. While it is certain that solar energy just like the wind is intermittent and directly depends on the weather and the day-night cycles, rapid advances in electricity storage technologies are helping to reduce this dependency and will further lead to the increasing share of solar in the energy system. Benefits of solar energy include reducing the use of fossil fuels, reducing energy imports, generating local wealth and jobs; it is renewable and inexhaustible, non-polluting and avoids global warming. Solar energy is one of the most popular renewable energy systems you will find around the world.
