The following summarizes the main aspects of the output: Direct gain system: • residual space heating demand for Kew is less than half that of Glasgow; • Kew’s useful solar supply as percentage of demand is more than twice that of Glasgow; • Kew’s absolute useful solar supply (kWh) is about 20 per cent more than that of Glasgow. Indirect gain system (30m3 sunspace, outer glass twice area of inner): • residual space heating demand for Kew is less than half that of Glasgow; • Kew’s useful solar supply as percentage of demand is more than twice that of Glasgow; • Kew’s absolute useful solar supply (kWh) is slightly less than that of Glasgow; • percentage saving compared to direct system lower in Glasgow than Kew (31% compared to 35%); • kWh saving compared to direct system higher in Glasgow than Kew.

This does not necessarily mean total visual and architectural isolation, but rather liberation from full tectonic integration, for example as a roof covering. The merits and handicaps of these two approaches are best discussed through built case studies. 1c Nordjyllands Kuntsmuseum in Ålborg The case for integration Following from the introductory setting out of ground rules, it is apparent that such a case may be broken down into systems or components for which it is not possible to dissociate from the immediate building design, and others where a choice exists.

This was more than five times as much as for wind in the first three years, the latter also being about 18 per cent less than the budget for ‘rational user of energy and solar energy in buildings’ (Lottner, 1992). With solar electricity in the limelight, 1997 – five years after the Earth Summit at Rio – marked a critical 100MWp (megawatt peak) per annum on an exponential curve of increasing PV output (Luther, 2002). Active solar thermal systems also maintained a strong presence. By 2001, Germany had circa 2,290,000m2 flat-plate collectors (Bosselaar, 2001).
