Buildings are key in supporting human activities and well-being by providing shelter and other important services to their users. Buildings are, however, also responsible for major energy use and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions during their life cycle. Improving the quality of services provided by buildings while reaching low energy demand ...

This study deals with the modelling of the future global energy demand in<br/>the transportation sector, how and in what extend this could be limited and<br/>which low carbon fuels and technologies could contribute to the mitigation of<br/>the energy demand. In the introduction of the current report, the greenhouse<br/>effect, the global warming...

The adverse human contribution to global climate change has forced the yachting industry to acknowledge the need to reduce its environmental impact due to the client's increasing pressure and potential future regulations to limit the ecological effects. Unfortunately, current real-world data presents a significant disparity between predicted and...

Energy consumption to cool an indoor environment is a substantial part of total energy end-use, particularly in a tropical climate with high energy demand for cooling. To improve energy efficiency, cooling systems can be optimized using a variety of neutral indoor temperatures to maintain a balance between an occupant’s thermal comfort and...

Increasing burdens on the earth’s resource systems are affecting not only the well-being of the planet, but also affects human health, safety and security. The increasing population and the aggregation of people in dense urban pockets adds to the pressures on already complex and volatile global systems. Our systems need to adapt and be resilient...

Shape has long been an important parameter in improving the internal comfort of buildings and reducing energy demand. This can be seen from historical vernacular architectural typologies, like igloos, which have minimal thermal loss surface to provide a comfortable internal climate.  Using a shape factor to reduce the...

Rapid urbanization and densification processes are changing microclimatic environments in cities around the world. Even though previous studies have demonstrated the impact of urban microclimate on space cooling and heating demand, modeling tools employed to support the design process largely overlook microclimatic conditions in assessing...

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...

Höfte, Vincent (author)
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,...

Guerra Santin, O. (author), Silvester, S. (author)
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...

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....

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...
