Kalkener's new online solar simulation software allows for calculating solar thermal water heating systems (STWH) This is done by:
sizing of its main components according to the monthly, weekly and daily hot water consumption profiles
annual solar energy production (taking into account the solar site survey and the orientation, tilt and shading losses)
key profitability indicators, (IRR and NPV)

Current assessments of residential building energy demand focus mainly on their operational aspect, notably in terms of space heating and cooling. The embodied energy of buildings and the transport energy consumption of their occupants are typically overlooked. Recent studies have shown that these two energy demands can represent more than half of the life-cycle energy of a building over 50 years. This study presents a holistic model and software tool which take into account energy requirements at the building scale, i.e.
