Passive Solar Design in Ecological Houses

Mohammad Borzooeian

Abstract: Passive solar architecture has been a significant criterion of achieving zero energy since 1979. Obviously there will be vast long-period benefits in the growth and development of inexhaustible, economical, and clean solar energy technologies, as the International Energy Agency said in 2011. The significance of the subject is related to global advantages and goals such as reducing pollution, developing sustainability, keeping fossil fuel prices low, increasing energy security, and increasing reliance on an in exhaustible and indigenous resource. Passive solar design generally means using sunlight and convert it into usable energy for heating (air, water, thermal mass), which leads to air-movement for ventilation or future use with only a little use of other energy sources. And on the other hand we have passive cooling which reduces summer cooling requirements using the same solar design principles. Some passive systems also use a small amount of energy for controlling devices such as dampers, fans, shutters, etc. in order to increase solar energy collection, storage, distribution, and use, and decline heat loss. This article reviews the basics and principles of ecological housing, passive solar concepts and three cases through doing document review. The purpose of the research is to find out how the solar concepts and principles are become feasible and practical.
