Summary

1. Perspectives of energy sources for 3rd millennium, energy released by civilization activity, greenhouse effect and its reasons. renewable sources and ecological benefit. 2. Low-energy, passive and zero houses. Possibilities of the passive heating – Trombe wall, hot-wind sollar heating, thermo-roofs, heating walls and floors, application of passive cooling. 3. Wind energy, wind like natural power source, construction design of the wind power plant, utilization at the world, future, natural conditions. 4. Small water power plants, turbines for the small water power plants, utomatization, natural conditions. 5. Heat pumps, principle and types of heat pumps, coefficient of performance (COP), possibilities of aplication, bivalent operation, natural conditions. 6. Photo-thermics, types of solar collectors, principles, possibilities of aplication, natural conditions.
