This paper analyses the environmental problems arising from the use of traditional energy resources for the production of electricity and heat. The advantages of replacing conventional energy resources and shifting to wind and solar energy technologies are explained. The possibilities of the combined use of solar and wind energy to provide an average family of 5 people with hot water and heating are explored. Experimental results were obtained from full-scale tests under prevailing conditions at Baku. Solar-wind hybrid systems for heating and hot water were designed and developed at the Institute of Radiation Problems of the Azerbaijan National Academy of Sciences. The paper also examines the possibility of supplying a family of 5 people with hot water produced by solar energy year-round and presents the results of the calculation of the energy balance of such facility.
