What is a U-value?
1 metre square area od the material with a 1 oC temperature difference across the material will conduct heat at a rate of 1 joule per second

What does a U-value measure?
How effective an insulator is- the lower the U-value, the better

What do solar panels provide?
Hot water for domestic use or to heat homes
