Answer:

Direct use of solar radiation for supplying building heat or electricity without additional energy input.

Explanation:

In contrast, “active solar” installations may use auxiliary motors for device or fluid motion within the solar power/heating system.

Examples of passive solar building are static thermal systems (windows, mass for heat storage, natural convection air movement), photo-voltaic solar electrical panels and use of landscaping to cool or heat parts of the building.
