High Lighting Quality Targets with Minimum Electric Power Density: Results of Experimentation | 2006 | English
We have conducted a campaign of testing efficient lighting installations during 6months in the area of Lyon, France. 26 work places were tested, each of them with aspecific lighting scheme.
This paper analyzes the indoor hygrothermal loads measured in 27 detached houses and in 13apartments. A survey was conducted during the years 2003-2006 in Estonia.
It is often claimed that energy is consumed; this is not only done in everyday conversation but also inscientific discussions associated with energy and environmental issues.
The EIE 2003 SAVE ENPER EXIST project (www.enper-exist.com) aims to address the specificproblems of the existing buildings in the scope of the introduction of the Energy Performance ofBuildings Directive (E
This paper presents an analysis of the transient thermal performance of dynamic insulation.
In this paper, we discuss the characteristics, of diatomite, a moisture-absorbent material used for anew air-conditioning system. Diatomite powder is formed into grains (diameter: 8 mm) with a slantrotatingprocessing machine.
This paper summarises the work of the LowEx co-operation /1/. The aim was to promote rational use ofenergy by encouraging the use of low temperature heating systems and high temperature cooling systems ofbuildings.
