Control of daylight level using slatted blinds is an effective means of energy saving. But proper judgment on the presence of direct sunlight is indispensable.
Mutsuo Honma, Takaharu Kawase, Satsuki Yoneda
In this paper, indoor thermal environment of the Terminal 1 of Chengdu Shuangliu International Airport (CSIA) is taken as study object, by means of investigating, measuring and simulating based on computational fluid dynamics (CFD) codes.
Jiying Liu, Nanyang Yu, Bo Lei, Xiangyang Rong and Ling Yang
A detailed model of the Net Zero Energy Town House in Toronto is developed in TRNSYS.
Omar Siddiqui and Alan Fung
Lack of attention to the early design process in relation to Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) has lead to an unsustainable built environment.
Eugene Loh, Nashwan Dawood, John Dean
This paper describes the development, demonstration and validation of an award-winning, domestic energy, carbon-counting and carbon-reduction model (DECoRuM) with the capability of measuring, modelling and mapping energy-related CO2 emissions from

The driving force of the thermal regulations revision in the European Union (EU) was the European Energy Performance of Buildings Directive – EPBD (European Commission, 2003).
Pedro Silva, Sandra Silva, Manuela Almeida and Luís Bragança
This paper presents the development of an energy and carbon model of existing dwellings and its application to urban housing.
Steven K. Firth and Kevin J. Lomas
The paper describes the simulation model for the prediction of the dynamic behavior of the complex system. The system includes as the main element the energy saving projects together with the elements from the environment.
Dalibor Vytlacil
In this paper, energy saving potential utilizing the heating effect of solar radiation is analyzed by simulation.
Seiji NAKANO, Akihito OZAKI, Toshiyuki WATANABE
Climate change is now recognized as a prime challenge of the 21st century. It is increasingly clear that there is a need to take action in order to adapt specific buildings to changing circumstances, in a cost-effective way.
P. de Wilde and W. Tian
Currently, there is a high emphasis on reducing the energy consumption and carbon emissions of buildings worldwide. Korea is facing an emerging issue of energy savings in buildings in perspective of new green economic policy.
Sabeeta Ghauri, Jon Hand, Cameron Johnstone, Jaemin Kim, Georgios Kokogiannakis, Paul Tuohy, Kyung-hun Woo
Following the introduction of the Energy Performance of Building Directive 2002/91/Ce (EPBD) the energy performance evaluation of buildings takes on a significant role in respect to legal requirements and to the Energy Performance Certification ma

This paper presents the work carried out under Subtask D of the International Energy Agency SHC Task 34/ECBCS Annex 43 (Testing and Validation of Building Energy Simulation Tools).
Clemens Felsmann, Jean Lebrun, Vincent Lemort, Aad Wijsman
Advanced control and operation of HVAC systems in buildings is one of the most promising energy efficient technologies. However, there is still significant energy saving potential in these systems.
Bin Yan, Ali M. Malkawi, Yongning Zhang, Jianjun Xia
The PSTAR (Primary and Secondary Terms Analysis and Renormalization) method was developed by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) to determine the key thermal parameters of a building from short-term outdoor test results.
Antonio Carrillo, Fernando Dominguez and Jose M. Cejudo
In this paper, the environment and energy performance of an actual coupled earth tube and natural ventilation system in a gymnasium was measured during the post-acceptance step in two operation states: no ventilation and natural ventilation.
Song Pan, Mingjie Zheng, Harunori Yoshida
A series of new simulation tools are being developed to help the building energy auditor in establishing his diagnosis (including benchmarking and detailed analysis of actual energy consumption) and in evaluating the selected Energy Conservation O
Stephane Bertagnolio, Jean Lebrun, Philippe André
In this study, the data related to the thermal performance of a single family house, such as room temperatures, incident solar radiations on external surfaces, form factors between external surfaces and outside environment were measured and compar
