Solar Energy Harvesting
Building performance requirements increasingly demand facade solutions that interface with and contribute to a building’s mechanical systems.
The Liquid Wall’s prefabricated, solar sub-assembly generates energy by harvesting sunshine: our most universal and dependable source of free energy. The solar captor pipes hot liquid into the building at each level, transferring solar radiation energy to a diverse set of functions – interior radiant heating, condensation cooling, HVAC dehumidification, and domestic hot water supply. This simple, direct input of solar energy can reduce a building’s energy consumption by thirty percent.
This cassette assembly can incorporate passive solar, photovoltaic panels and any new technology that captures the energy of the sun. It is designed for easy upgrade or replacement with simple, universal couplings.
