In the context of shrinking non-renewable energy resources and reducing greenhouse gas emissions, it turns out necessary to drop energy consumption and move towards renewable energy sources. In this regard, solar energy being an abundant source of energy, it can play an important role in the building energy supply. This energy supplement can come from passive solar technologies, of which the Trombe wall is one of the passive models most used in the building envelope, whose main role is to ensure net gains. Thereby, the main aim of this study is to highlight the use of a simple method to reduce the buildings heating demand. For this, a 3-D model was developed through scSTREAM V2020 software to investigate the thermal performance of a classical Trombe wall in winter while targeting desirable indoor thermal comfort conditions. In addition, studies have been performed to optimize the energy consumption It turned out that, in the presence (respectively absence) of solar irradiation, the Trombe wall acts as a solar absorber (respectively a heat source).
