PACKAGING AND TRANSPORT Once goods have been produced, they need to be packaged and transported. It is possible to make cost savings in these areas at the same time as improving environmental performance.
ENSURING LEGISLATIVE COMPLIANCE. Energy-efficient, climate responsive construction requires a whole building perspective that integrates architectural and engineering concerns early in the design process. For example, the evaluation of a building envelope design must consider its effect on cooling loads and daylighting.
This paper evaluates the benefits of scaling-up energy efficiency and renewable energy programs for the building sector in Tunisia. Both energy and non-energy benefits are quantif. Performance evaluation of there is an increasing need for energy-efficient building design which uses design features and technology that makes a building climate responsive, that is, with.
A home energy audit, also known as a home energy assessment, can help you understand the whole picture of your home's energy use. An audit can help you determine how much energy your home uses, where your home is losing energy, and which problem areas and fixes you should prioritize to make your home more efficient and comfortable.
The second edition of this authoritative textbook equips students with the tools they will need to tackle the challenges of sustainable building design and engineering.
The book looks at how to design, engineer and monitor energy efficient buildings, how to adapt buildings to climate change, and how to make buildings healthy, comfortable and secure. New material for this edition includes.
through the adoption of energy efficient practices. Green building construction can be largely driven by green building rating systems. The Green Building Index (GBI) is a first-generation rating tool for energy efficient buildings in Malaysia. Whether GBI is an efficient framework that can lead Malaysia towards its goal of creating more green.
An authoritative and comprehensive guide to managing energy conservation in infrastructures. Energy Conservation in Residential, Commercial, and Industrial Facilities offers an essential guide to the business models and engineering design frameworks for the implementation of energy conservation in presented models of both physical and technological.
Four and a half million non-residential buildings in the U.S are estimated to be suitable candidates for energy retrofits (McGraw Hill, ). The current process of evaluating design alternatives for energy efficient retrofit projects uses drawings and 3D renderings together with documents to share energy simulation results and associated assumptions.
This book analyzes the trends and technologies of green and energy efficient building, identifying strategies for implementing energy savings and enabling the use of renewable resources in residential, commercial, healthcare and educational building sectors.
