Abstract text:
At the height of the Industrial Revolution, during times when the supply of fossil fuels (i.e. oil and coal) were seemingly endless, there were a few people who were concerned about the future of the nation once these non-renewable sources have finally been exhausted. Solar energy is one of the emerging renewable energy technologies still not competitive, but exhibiting both technical and economic potential to be so inside 10…15 years. There is basically no necessary “technology jumps” as prerequisites, but such a development will demand a favourable political climate.
Key Words:
solar energy; renewable energy; solar house; sustainability.
