Forget AC: Cool Your Home Naturally. Space cooling and heating can account for up to 45 percent of your total home energy use every year, but there are numerous strategies you can employ to reduce. Exploitation of solar energy in buildings, particularly in the natural and low energy heating and cooling. The case study of an energy-efficient residence in Nikaia, Larissa.

SHC , International Conference on Solar Heating and Cooling for Buildings and Industry September , , Freiburg, Germany Solar heating & cooling energy mixes to transform low energy buildings in nearly zero energy buildings Macedon D. Moldovana,*, Ion Visaa, Mircea Neagoea, Bogdan G. Burduhosa. IEER has found the Buildings Energy Data Book (BEDB) very useful. When we discovered that it was no longer easily accessed on DOE’s website we decided to post it here: The Book ( MB) and all the Tables, in a spreadsheet ( MB) Table of Contents Foreword Introduction List of Tables Glossary Buildings Sector [ ].

The major areas of energy consumption in buildings are heating, ventilation, and air conditioning—35% of total building energy; lighting—11%; major appliances (water heating, refrigerators and freezers, dryers)—18% with the remaining 36% in miscellaneous areas including electronics. In each case there are opportunities both. Building angles and curves can be used to capture air from predominant wind directions. Roof shapes, including overhangs, as well as balconies, can enhance air movement in and out of buildings, as can the building’s vertical cross-section. Buildings raised above ground enable cooling through the Size: KB.

She set up the Solar Energy and Building Natural and low energy cooling in buildings. book Research Group in Stuttgart in Her current research emphasis is on the development and implementation of active solar thermal cooling technologies, low-energy buildings and sustainable communities, control strategies and simulation technology, heat transfer in façades, by: Passive Low Energy Cooling of Buildings 1st Edition It's really interesting, and has many information on passive strategies about natural cooling of buildings, I as a brazilian architect strongly recomend this book, mainly for those who live in a hot climate.

Read more/5(4). This book supports HVAC planners in reducing the cooling energy demand, improving the indoor environment and designing more cost-effective building concepts. High performance buildings have shown that it is possible to go clearly beyond the energy requirements of existing legislation and obtaining good thermal comfort.

图书Low Energy Cooling for Sustainable Buildings 介绍、书评、论坛及推荐. The book is unique in including a large set of experimental results from years of monitoring actual building and energy plants, as well as detailed laboratory and simulation analyses.

These demonstrate which systems really work in buildings, what the real. LOW ENERGY AND PASSIVE COOLING TECHNOLOGIES Low energy cooling technologies provide cooling in an energy efficient manner, thus reducing energy consumption and peak electricity demand.

They do so by making use of low quality sources of cooling; whether it is ambient air or ground temperatures or warmer chilled water. used to promote energy-efficiency in the buildings and avoid increased cooling loads.

The use of passive cooling techniques including natural ventilation, thermal mass, shading devices, and responsive landscaping have been adopted in significant projects to maintain the new vision of the country towards building sustainability.

As low-energy cooling concepts use environmental energy from the ground, ground water and outdoor air, these buildings cannot necessarily guarantee a certain, specific room temperature. However, energy-optimised buildings with low-energy cooling concepts provide for a good indoor environment considering adaptive thermal comfort criteria.

Natural ventilation is a sustainable design strategy. However, its utilisation in buildings. requires understanding of many relevant aspects including its driving forces and.

strategies. Natural. elements can provide natural cooling and reduce the energy used for cooling in the buildings. The paper concludes that this will limit the energy demand for cooling and will also result in an adapted architecture to the climatic environment, which will encourage innovation design solutions for building professionals in a hot-dry climate.

Monodraught’s COOL-PHASE® low-energy cooling and ventilation system reduces the running costs of buildings, creating a fresh and healthy indoor environment.

Through its novel application of phase-change material (PCM) technology in a thermal energy store, temperatures are kept within a comfort zone, while energy consumption is reduced by up to 90% compared to conventional cooling systems. Many cycles have been proposed for adsorption cooling and principle of operation of a typical system is indicated in Fig.

Its aim is to promote awareness of the alternatives available and their suitability for different applications. Passive Low Energy Cooling of Buildings. A practical sourcebook for building designers, providing comprehensive discussion of the impact of basic architectural choices on cooling efficiency, including the layout and orientation of the structure, window size and shading, exterior color, and even the use of plantings around the site/5(6).

In regions with very hot periods, natural ventilation can be enhanced by using low-energy mechanical cooling systems, such as fans. These energy efficient devices can be very useful in cases of existing buildings, especially those where the potential of natural ventilation is limited (Figures –).

this Buildings Energy Data Book to provide a current and accurate set of comprehensive buildings-related data and to promote the use of such data for consistency throughout DOE programs. Additional data (e.g., more current, widely accepted, and/or better documented data) and suggested changes should be submitted to D&R International.

Energy management systems are used to monitor building temperature inside and outside buildings and control the boilers and coolers. Energy efficiency is a major cost issue for commerce and industry and of growing importance on university syllabuses.

Fully revised and updated, this text considers new developments in the control of low energy and HVAC. Low-energy buildings, which include zero-energy buildings, passive houses and green buildings, may use any of a large number of techniques to lower energy use.

The following are some of the techniques used to achieve low-energy buildings, which excludes energy generation (microgeneration).

Improvements to building envelope. Active daylighting. Hybrid ventilation is is a system that combines natural and mechanical ventilation. Hybrid ventilation is a relevant solution for new residential buildings, especially if roof windows are available to facilitate stack effect. Several variations of hybrid ventilation systems exist.

A practical sourcebook for building designers, providing comprehensive discussion of the impact of basic architectural choices on cooling efficiency, including the layout and orientation of the structure, window size and shading, exterior color, and even the use of plantings around the site.

All major varieties of passive cooling systems are presented, with extensive analysis of 3/5(3). In office buildings, the use of passive cooling techniques combined with a reduced cooling load may result in a good thermal summer comfort and therefore save cooling energy consumption.3 Passive Cooling Strategies.
