HOW TO DEVELOP DISTRICT COOLING IN CHINA WITH SUCCESS

This paper aims at pointing out that how a District Cooling system can be a more energy efficientsolution compared with a decentralized cooling solution. In order to give a fair comparison, the authorapplies equivalent electric power coefficient of performance. This comparison approach will beinstructive for designing an energy efficient cooling solution in China.Firstly, the paper gives the definition, components and possible energy source of a District CoolingSystem.

BUILDING ENERGY SIMULATION USING MEASURED AND MODELED HOURLY SOLAR RADIATION DATA

Building energy simulation has proved useful in the development of building energy codes (especiallyperformance-based) and subsequent code compliance checking. A weather year is required for thehourly computation of heating/cooling loads and corresponding energy consumption. Many locationshave measured daily solar radiation data, but not hourly. Attempts were made to model hourly globalsolar radiation (GSR) data from measured daily values using the Liu and Jordan method for Harbin,Beijing, Shanghai, Kunming and Hong Kong.
