Li-Fi is a wireless technology using visible light to receive and transmit data. The term was coined by the inventor of this technology Harald Haas.
LiDAR is the acronym for Light Detection and Ranging. It is a technology to measure the distance to a target by a laser pulse. A sensor detects a reflected beam and calculates the distance based on time and wavelengths.
Building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV)
Building-integrated photovoltaics are the PV materials used during construction of a building. These materials are used on the building roof, skylight or facade to capture sunlight.
Smart meters are a potential replacement for your electricity and gas meters. They can establish two-way communication with the power supplier by reporting the energy consumption daily.
Solar energy for NZEB (net-zero energy building)
Net-zero energy building (NZEB) is a term to describe buildings which meet their energy demands on a yearly basis by means of on-site energy production without relying on external power sources.
Solar cookers use the sun's energy for cooking or heating the food, boiling water or pasteurizing beverages. The main principle of its work is to use reflecting surfaces to concentrate sunlight.
