This is achieved through the use of proper orientation, insulation, windows, and thermal mass. 2. Passive cooling reduces heat in a building through natural processes such as ventilation, shading, and radiant barriers. 3. Passive solar windows are designed to increase energy efficiency by minimizing heat loss and gain. 4. The roof of a passive solar building is crucial in maximizing solar gain and energy efficiency. 5. Photovoltaic devices convert solar radiation into electricity and are a popular form of renewable energy. Solar energy is a clean and renewable energy source that generates electricity from sunlight. 6. There are three types of solar power systems: on-grid, off-grid, and hybrid. Proper mounting systems for solar panels are necessary for correct installation and positioning in any solar energy system.
