Solar chimney will save up to 50% of electricity for heating

About 19% of the world's energy resources are used for heating, ventilation and cooling of buildings, write

study authors. Installation of solar chimneys will reduce energy costs for heating by 50%.

The solar chimney is a passive solarA heating and cooling system that uses natural ventilation to control the temperature in the building. Modern solar chimneys consist of a glass wall opposite the black painted wall. This design allows you to maximize the absorption of solar energy.

Ventilation holes on top and bottom of the mechanismcontrol the flow of air inside and outside the chimney for heating or cooling. When the sun heats the chimney, it heats up and the air inside it.

In the course of a new work, the researchers developed a solar chimney that will allow carbon dioxide to be drawn out during a fire, as well as deliver fresh air to the room.

Our study demonstrates that solarchimneys provide significant benefits for both human safety and the environment. We hope that our findings will inspire increased investment and the development of solar chimneys around the world.
