Passive solar building design

  title={Passive solar building design},
  author={Javad Sadeghsaberi and Sana Zarei and S. Hemmati},
One of the important issue's today's scientific worlds is the topic of sustainable development and sustainable architecture which is followed. Without doubt, unsustainable consumption of non- renewable natural resources like fossil fuels, the Environment will be at risk in the near future. While, the building sector accounts more than a third of energy. There fore reduce the amount of energy in Buildings causes toward sustainable development which consistent with the needs of today's generation… Expand
