Solar Heating Panels
Solar energy is the energy obtained from the use of electromagnetic radiation from the Sun
Solar radiation reaching the Earth has been harnessed by humans since ancient times, using different technologies that have evolved over time from conception. Currently, heat and sunlight can be harnessed through sensors and photovoltaic cells and thermal collectors heliostats that can transform it into electrical or thermal energy. It is a so-called renewable energy or clean energy, which can make considerable contributions to solving some of the most pressing problems facing humanity.
The various solar technologies are classified into passive or active depending on the way they capture, convert and distribute solar energy. Active technologies include the use of photovoltaic panels and thermal collectors to collect energy. Among the passive techniques, different techniques are framed in bioclimatic architecture: the orientation of buildings to the Sun, selecting materials with favorable thermal mass or having properties for light scattering and space design by ventilation naturally.
