A new intelligent system for sheathing of buildings based on solar patents by Mr. Jan Sehnoutek, providing full energy independence of old or new buildings and its operation in electricity, heating and hot water simultaneously (the buying of the copyright along with the author synergies for a quick application already available )

New solar technology based on the patent no. 302600CZ a its other versions for an elementary school (and other buildings aswell) and it’s reconstruction - A MODEL EXAMPLE

Goal: Application of the patent in a reconstruction of an elementary school for ca. 500 users and possibly its full-year energy independence in electricity, heating and hot water simultaneously

Nature of the patent: Patent solves a substantial increase in the efficiency of the solar radiation in its rays and their their concentration with the help of a lens principle, all of this in a completely repeatable cycle, thus making it an inexhaustible and free resource.

The technical solution: for this purpose, a system of so-called "Intelligent plaster" is designed, which comprises supporting metal profiles anchored to the original plaster. It is possible to put an insulation into it while in reconstruction, an absorber (photovoltaic, thermal or combinations thereof) of pipes with distributions, a lens sheet or lens plates and a visual cover plate with ventilation slots; the solar technology is placed in vertical exterior walls at the southern, western and eastern area;  the northern area may only have an air slot, which may be accompanied by heat pipes of the solar technology over time, thus ensuring the heating in winter months by natural circulation (the warm air rises up through the slot); another system of the new technology can be applied to windows as a lenticular lens shading film or lamellae; another possibility is the application of new technology onto the roof structures, where the excessive space of buildings can be used for its insolation

Advantages of the new system:  creating a protective and utility sandwich of several elements, which can ensure the best possible function of the building envelope alone (no homogeneous and thus physically limited materiál included); wet processes during construction work are completely eliminated (including drying time)  - instantly dry and fast installation with an early effect, regardless of the weather; the foundation - original brickwork without the need of any modifications; easy leveling of any unevenness of the ground - the original plaster; essentially unlimited life of the supporting structure; easy replacement or repair of the individual infill panels (thermal insulations, electricity or heat absorbers, lens system or surface parts); forming an air gap which can be tempered - prevents sudden temperature and humidity fallouts and extends the life of the materials used including its own supporting masonry (the destruction of masonry by moisture, frost and wind acts differently); casing of the object may be partially or wholly exchanged for other materials therefore obtaining a different appearance of the building; the system easily allows other gradual applications of the new solar technology in its development, thereby increasing the utility value of the building and its energy advantages; the current color of the reconstruction project proposal can be maintained

Exceptional advantages:

1/ complete energy independence in the hot water heater (about 70% of all costs for objects), and elektricity

2/ extending the life of a building by ca. 70-100 years thanks to the undistorted weather statics

3/  extending the life of the materials used ( e.g  photovoltaic or thermal panels from the current ca. 15 years to at least twice its amount!)

4/ repeatable, free and inexhaustible energy source - the sun

5/ the likely excessive amount of electricity and heat than is to be consumed – can be used for surrounding buildings and establishing power electric bikes, electric scooters, electric cars of students and staff of the school facilities - they may have a completely free service, ensuring clean air in school’s surroundings, especially in the winter months; all public lighting for free; possible heating of the outdoor and adjacent roads during the winter months – preventing slippery ice and protection of health

Disadvantages and risks of the application: the system is not certified - must be implemented as a prototype trial run – PD with conventional heating systém must be processed, selected and implemented so that it could be gradually converted to the new solar technology as cheaply and readily over time (water heating seems to be the most ideal choice); some technical and technological details must be solved; the new solar system requires several earth-insulated hot water tanks and storage units for acumulators (batteries of electricity conservation) for a school of this size; the system requires constant monitoring and measuring; individual circuits are connected via controllers that are operating on the basis of chips, thermostats, sensors, so the traffic is continuously monitored, evaluated and programmed, so that the the entire object can work in sections, and so that can „back up“ each other and, as a whole „rest“.

Recommendation of the author: as a former developer of building structures at a research institute, recommends the use of a construction, where only glass is visible from the external / outdoor side (meaning the structure is hidden behind it) by doing so, you save about 3-5 percent of the heat demand just by "reflecting" the weathering compared to conventional-type lining; the new solar technology requires  the use of indoor lighting using LEDs during its "workinf" and "resting" performance; electrical appliances are also at the highest technical level of energy consumption at the minimum level of A+;

Interesting fact: the object with the use of the new solar technology will be implemented as one of the first ones in the world and will be the interest of other professionals and media from the particular area and from around the world, according to the patent listed above
