A number of policy initiatives to mainstream energy efficiency are in place in most countries that are expected to accelerate energy efficiency and sustainability in buildings. Streamlining the green building movement requires coordinated monitoring and intelligent control of a building's vital functions. Energy-Efficiency Standards and Green Building Certification Systems Used by the Department of Defense for methodologies to calculate the additional costs of design and construction and applied them to different types of buildings. The studies indicated that the additional first costs for high-performance or green buildings would typically.

  A modern and unique perspective on solar and geothermal technologies for heating and cooling buildings This book will have a broad appeal reaching practising engineers in the industry as well as students. With introductory sections for each technology described, material includes chapters on: geothermal energy use for the heating and cooling of buildings; a chapter on electrically driven heat Author: Ursula Eicker. Studies of the potential for energy efficiency improvement in buildings typically assess this potential in terms of three categories: technical potential, which is the broadest and includes technologies with improved performance but not necessarily lower costs; economic potential, which includes those technologies that are judged to be.

Combining comprehensive energy efficiency requirements for new buildings and extensive retrofit programs for existing buildings would reduce the total final energy consumption of the building sector in the Arab region by TWh by and by TWh by if all the energy programs start to be implemented by ENERGY-EFFICIENT BUILDING DESIGN: TOWARDS CLIMATE-RESPONSIVE ARCHITECTURE Steffen Lehmann Director, Research Centre for Sustainable Design and Behavior (sd+b) School of Art, Architecture and Design, University of South Australia, Adelaide, Australia Keywords: energy efficiency, passive design strategies, climate-responsive facades,File Size: KB.

The goals of this chapter are to discuss and showcase Dubai's sustainable buildings (new and existing) and to present the energy-efficiency principles exploited in them, and their performance.

This chapter contains case studies, which represent three new buildings and three refurbished buildings. This book provides researchers and professionals with a coherent set of tools and techniques for enhancing energy efficiency in new and existing buildings.

The case studies presented help practitioners implement the techniques and technologies in their own projects. Handbook of Energy Efficiency in Buildings: A Life Cycle Approach offers a comprehensive and in-depth coverage of the subject with a further focus on the Life Cycle.

The editors, renowned academics, invited a diverse group of researchers to develop original chapters for the book and managed to well integrate all contributions in a consistent volume. Furthermore, some additional case studies related to LSF buildings thermal behaviour and energy efficiency will be described, namely the “Affordable Houses” research project [5, 6], a parametric study regarding the thermal performance of LSF houses in Csb climatic regions, the impact of climate change on the energy efficiency of a LSF Cited by: 2.

Energy Efficiency Manual: for everyone who uses energy, pays for utilities, designs and builds, is interested in energy conservation and the environment by Donald R. Wulfinghoff |. Advanced Studies in Energy Efficiency and Built Environment for Developing Countries research presented in this book stressed on the need of sustainably shaping buildings and cities using renewable energy sources.

Topics included in this book are (1) Resilience in the Built Environment, (2) Design for energy-efficient architecture and (3.

Accelerated urbanization imposes immense pressure on the dwindling energy sources and fragile ecosystems. Yet, the resource crunch confronting energy supplies can be alleviated if we design and develop future buildings by incorporating sound concepts of energy efficiency and sustainability.

Covering 41 projects from India s various climatic zones, this book provides thorough /5(5). With increasing energy demand and natural/human-induced disasters in recent years, the two key concepts—sustainability and resiliency—are crucial for engineers and architects in the current design and construction industry.
