This paper discusses the possibility of asimple solar hot water pre-heating system fordomestic hot water supply. In Japan, the fossilfuel use for hot water supply amounts to about30% of the total in residential buildings.
Hoshino, Y.; Shukuya, M.
Sales data shows that the use of air-to-air heatpumps in New Zealand houses is rapidlyincreasing. This rapid uptake will lead to newenergy and peak power demands on theelectricity supply system.
French, L.; Isaacs, N.; Camilleri, M.
It is well known that the turbulence anisotropyhas a remarkable influence on the flow of threedimensional wall jets.
Heschl, C.; Sanz, W.
This paper describes the history and background of the ventilation requirements. Thepaper starts with an overview of existinginternational requirements.

Honda Wako Building(hereinafter called HWB)" is ahigh efficiency saving energyoffice building with six floorshaving 52,138-m2 of total floorarea.
Tamura, F.; Yokoyama, H.; Orima, M.
A radiant heating applied to floor, so called'Ondol', is a traditional heating method in Koreaand has been widely used.
W.J. Hwang, Y.M. Kim, J.Y. Sohn
A numerical model of an underfloor air distribution system was created to aid future research on the system's environmental performance. A validated numerical model can serve to minimize the need for costly experimental setups.
