Solar Energy from 6,000 Years Ago Until Today Webinar
Professor and author John Perlin discusses his book Let It Shine: The 6,000-Year Story of Solar Energy in this webinar hosted by the Sustainable Buildings Industry Council (SBIC). The book tracks the use of solar energy techniques from the ancient Chinese to today. In this webinar, Perlin presented on how solar technologies including passive design, water heating, and photovoltaics have impacted the design and construction of buildings. SBIC itself plays a role in this history as it was initially established as the Passive Solar Industries Council in 1980.
