Happy St. Paddy's Day! May you giggle with fate and be forever young.

While the OFFICE of President remains in highest regard at NewEnergyNews, this administration's position on climate change makes it impossible to regard THIS president with respect. Below is the NewEnergyNews theme song until 2020.

    New Energy And Historic Buildings In Europe

    Reconciling solar energy and heritage preservation

    November 29, 2016 (PhysOrg)

    "…[Researchers just received the Innovator of the Year award in Sweden for] a method to assess the aesthetic impact of solar panels on buildings and to set objective criteria for where they should be placed. Some municipal governments could apply this method as early as next year…[Inelegant solar installations turn away potential solar users. If done properly, however, they can further spur growth. The method] allows the authorities to take local architectural constraints, such as historical districts, into account when analyzing where to install solar panels on existing buildings…[It] should ultimately help reconcile heritage advocates and renewable energy supporters…[The method is called LESO-QSV (Quality-Site-Visibility) and] is based on the new concept of ‘architectural criticity’ in urban areas…[The] acceptability of solar panels is assessed against the sensitivity of the site and the visibility of the panels from the public space…The higher the degree of ‘criticity’ – such as the facade of a highly visible historical building – the more emphasis will be placed on harmoniously integrating the solar panels. On the other hand, a flat roof on a factory in an industrial zone will be given a much lower ‘criticity’ rating, and, consequently, be subject to lower integration standards…” click here for more
