This document aims to describe and present the energy efficient measures that are implemented in four dwellingsthat are currently under construction on the foothill of mountain Dionysos, northern of Athens (Greece).
Microclimate condition in an environment is influenced by the local environment condition. Urban morphology,especially building, pavement and greenery are the main factors.
Study on the cooling ceiling’s effect on thermal comfort and energy consumption in an office space for different climates in Europe | 2007 | English
This paper objective is to analyze by simulations, the thermal comfort and energy consumption when using a radiant cooling ceiling.
A comparison between energy performance of one DSF buildings studied sample and office buildings benchmarks in Europe | 2007 | English
This paper describes ongoing energy benchmarks studies of double-skin façade buildings. A comparison between energy performance of these actual buildings and European office buildings benchmarks is discussed.
There are in Brazil ten million people in the south region of the country.
One of the current challenges in the urban climate researcharea mentions the standardization of procedures for data collection and analysis (OKE, 2005); this involvesnomenclatures and methods, so that the transmissionof the developed technology ca
Ecobuildings: Towards an energy-efficient European building stock beyond nationalrequirements | 2007 | English
The building sector is at present responsible for more than 40 % of the EU energy consumption.
Operation and measurement results of the solar cooling installation in Rethymnon village hotel | 2007 | English
The solar cooling plant in the Rethymno village Hotel supplies cooling energy to the dinning room as well as it supplies hot water to its central Domestic Hot Water (DHW) network.
Installation of an evaporatively cooled hydroponic greenhouse on the roof of building can yield net energy savings for the combined structure, when compared to conventional air conditioning, and can conserve space by adding productive capacity to
Since recent years cooling demand in office buildings has tremendously increased due to higher internal heat production of equipment, lighting and higher thermal comfort requirements.
The buildings sector accounts for 40% of the energy requirements in Europe, which is more than by industryor transport. That is a lot and it is too much! Buildingstherefore have a major part to play in meeting the emissions reductions targets!
Development and characterization of semitransparent double skin PV facades with heat recovering | 2007 | English
This research aims at developing new standardized typologiesof semitransparent double skin facades formed by an external semitransparent PV laminate, a wide air gap and a rear glass (Figure 1).
This paper presents the results of a monitoring study carried out in the city of Adelaide, Australia, whose primaryaim was to calibrate a model capable of predicting air temperature in an urban street canyon for extended periods in a variety of we

Due to the exhaustion of fossil resources and greenhouse warming, the control of energy has become a key subject for the 21st century.
Building AdVent is a new collaborative project funded by the EU through its Intelligent Energy – Europe (IEE) programme.
Thermal insulation in the warm climate can reduce the energy demand for cooling in residential buildings up to 70%.To define the gap in between the actual applied thermal requirements and what would be todays economic optimum,Eurima ordered a stud
This paper looks at the design and construction in 2006/2007 of a ‘green’ office building in Wellington, New Zealand.
The aim of the specific paper is the analysis of the efficiencyof power lines as a communication media for Building Energy Management Systems.
