Renewable energy technologies: Key factors for successful installations

bre 5This series of five BRE Information Papers on the main renewable energy technologies for buildings and communities covers biomass systems; photovoltaic systems; large-scale low-carbon heating; ground source heat pumps and low-temperature heating; and solar thermal systems.

These introductory guides are for anyone interested in using renewable energy technologies for buildings and communities. They cover the main issues associated with the planning, installation and operation of renewable energy systems in dwellings, and identify the key characteristics that make a building suitable for these systems. Indicative costs and benefits are given, as well as sample calculations showing the financial return for a typical household, although much of this information can be applied to all types and sizes of building. References are given to legislative requirements design, installation, commissioning and control; standards; and details of financial incentives.

The Papers are also available separately.
