Solar Energy Technologies in Cultural Heritage offers a complete overview of solar renewable energy possibilities, developments, innovations, and challenges for cultural heritage applications, bridging the traditional boundary between research, professional practices, and policies, and between arts, architecture, engineering, and social science. This is an essential resource for all those with an interest in solar energy technologies for built environment and particularly cultural heritage, including researchers, scientists, and graduate students, engineers, designers, developers, and policymakers.

Conservation of heritage buildings, particularly in urban settings, has evolved from purely physical preservation to making them functionally relevant for the modern day through redevelopment and repurposing. This opens the opportunity for the integration of active solar energy systems in buildings, towns, and landscapes. This book presents international contributions on the integration of solar renewable energies within cultural heritage, providing detailed coverage of the cultural, legislative, and social framework, design criteria and simulation tools, and innovative materials and technologies, and addressing key challenges.
