China is undergoing massive changes in order to tackle their carbon dioxide emissions problem. Aside from the problem of climate change, it is facing another problem – that of air pollution. Use of dirty fuels by residential households such as biomass and coal cause emissions harmful for the environment, as well as to the health of citizens. In...

This research will examine a design for an off-grid safari park in Iran. During this research different passive techniques from the vernacular architecture will be discussed. These principles will be used to reduce the energy demand of the safari park, since it should be an off-grid park, in order to deliver a design proposal with an achievable...

The building sector uses 40% of the primary energy worldwide. Energy demand in a non-residential existing building is rising due to higher comfort conditions, population growth and the enhancement of the building services. On the other hand, renewable energy technologies are every time more accessible for the built environment, especially the...

Smart management of urban built environment relies on the availability of data supporting sound policy making and guiding city renovation processes toward more sustainable and performant models. Nevertheless, public managers are unlikely to have comprehensive information on the existing building stock. In addition, tools providing effective...

To improve access to electricity, decentralized, solar-based off-grid solutions like Solar Home Systems (SHSs) and rural micro-grids have recently seen a prolific growth. However, electrical load profiles, usually the first step in determining the electrical sizing of off-grid energy systems, are often non-existent or unreliable, especially when...

The global energy demand is increasing as a result of population growth and increased wealth standards. The share of local renewable energy supply is also increasing, driven by the urge to mitigate climate problems.<br/><br/>Residential energy demand and renewable energy supply are both intermittent; the demand profile depends on several aspects...

In the design practice simulation methods are already widely used to support the understanding of energy performance and to help designers in reducing energy demand during the design process. However, energy simulation tools are largely limited to the individual building level, and urban microclimate conditions and<br/>variations in local wind,...

Urban areas consist of a mix of households and services, such as offices, shops and schools. Yet most urban energy models only consider household load profiles, omitting the service sector. Realistic assessment of the potential for renewable resource integration in cities requires models that include detailed demand and generation profiles....

Building simulations are often used to predict energy demand and to determine the financial feasibility of the low-carbon projects. However, recent research has documented large differences between actual and predicted energy consumption. In retrofit projects, this difference creates uncertainty about the payback periods and, as a consequence...

Our present economy is high-energy and demand-intensive, demand met through the use of high energy yield fossil fuels. Energy efficiency and renewable energy sources are proposed as the solution and named the ‘twin pillars’ of sustainable energy policy. Increasing energy efficiencies are expected to reduce energy demand and fossil fuel use and...

Office building in hot and humid climate are designed to meet the expectation of human thermal comfort, which most of the time the use of air conditioning system is inevitable and becomes a necessity which then leads to a high energy consumption. Therefore in this thesis project, other possible building strategies which are able to tackle the...

With water being the most important ingredient of the design the main question is how to deal with the enormous energy consumption the typology of this function brings with it. The three functions (swimming, surfing, hamam) that are renowned for their energy demands meant that an in-depth research into green energy was done into using the...

The normalization of political relationship between ASEAN and China brings a closer economic cooperation between them. It culminated through the establishment of ASEAN-China Free Trade Area (ACFTA). In this research, I analyze the economic, environmental, and geopolitical impacts of ACFTA on Indonesia. The economic analysis covers trade...

Dutch households consume 20% of the total energy used in the country and therefore targeted by decision makers to reduce their fossil fuel dependence and carbon emission attributed to them (“Energy mix”, 2007; CBS, 2008.). Different technical systems such as solar panel, micro-Combined Heat and Power (micro-CHP), efficient appliance and bulbs,...

Home Energy Management Systems (HEMS), e.g. energy monitors, are intermediary products that can visualize, manage, and/or monitor the energy use of other products or whole households. HEMS increasingly receive attention for their role in energy conservation in households. A literature review and a case study examine the mid-term effectiveness ...
