Abstract

The purpose of this presentation is to introduce a new developed construction material for Zero Energy Buildings (ZEB) called Heat Insulation Solar Glass (HISG). The HISG possesses both higher solar power generation and heat insulation capacity which can supply enough renewable energy and save more cooling and heating energy consumption in order to reach the target of ZEB. The key technology of HISG is based on the theory of off-module solar power enhancement and increase of heat insulation ability. The HISG consists of see through multi-junctions thin film to generate higher solar power and reflection thin film to enhance more solar power generation and reduce more heat penetration. According to a real site testing of a glass house with the size of 3 m x 3 m x 3 m in Taiwan, the renewable solar power generated from HISG house can supply all the energy consumption from cooling system inside the house and still remain some power to feed back into grid due to its higher solar power generation and heat insulation.

Brief Bio

Prof. Young got Marie Curie Award in Feb. 2013 and started this task in EU from 1st Jan. 2014 to Dec. 2015 with a project titled as “Development of Heat Insulation Solar Glass for Low Carbon Buildings, DHISGLCB''. He was invited to do this EU project due to his outstanding invention called Heat Insulation Solar Glass (HISG). The HISG can possess higher solar power generation and higher heat insulation capability at the same time to get the best energy efficiency for a building due to it can produce renewable energy and save energy consumption simultaneously. According to a real site testing in Taiwan, the power generation from HISG testing house can supply all the energy consumption inside the house and realize the task of Zero Energy Buildings (ZEB). The HISG is very unique in the world for the zero energy buildings in the future. Discovery Channel interviewed him twice to introduce this outstanding product in both 2009 and 2011 and broadcasted in Discovery Channel all over the world. There were already several HISG applications on buildings from 2009 all over the world. He was teaching in National Taiwan University of Science & Technology (NTUST) from Feb. 1990 as an Associate Professor, Full Professor and then Distinguished Professor until now. He led a team called “Heat Insulation Solar Glass Research Group (HISGRG)” in NTUST from 2007 to develop the technology for Energy Efficiency Buildings.
