Abstract

Architectural integration is a major issue in the development and spreading of solar thermal technologies. Yet the architectural quality of most existing building integrated solar thermal systems is quite poor, which often discourages potential new users. In this paper, we present of a proposal for the integration of solar thermal technology in buildings, particularized for the Iranian context through a case study, a sport complex building in Isfahan Museum Park , which consists of swimming pool, shooting, multi-dimensional cinema, computer simulator and darts. This proposal has been an action plan being implemented, which the main objective is the selection of the most appropriate technological solution for the integration of renewable energy in buildings. In this paper we propose the selection of the most appropriate technological solution for the integration of three thermal solar systems in the new building. The selection of the best solution will take into account the constructive aspects of the building, the building's energy needs and the local availability of renewable resources and market technologies. For each solar thermal system, the general scheme of the proposed technical solution is presented.
