Achieving energy efficiency and thermal comfort through passive strategies and renewable technology. Wuhai demonstration center project as an application case

Achieving energy efficiency and thermal comfort through passive strategies and renewable... Buildings are designed to meet and improve the quality of life of the occupants. During the last decades, standards on building construction have risen sharply to integrate new, ambitious demands regarding energy efficiency and thermal comfort in the design procedure. The importance of understanding the performance of a proposed building project is undeniable nowadays. This paper presents a building performance assessment of the proposed demonstration center in Wuhai. The analysis of this paper focus on thermal comfort and energy performance through the application of passive solutions and renewable technology. The purpose of this study is to predict energy efficiency and thermal comfort through an effective simulation assessment of a proposed project at the design stage. Using parametric study, it is concluded that in this well-designed project, when appropriate building parameters are used, very little amount of energy is required for heating and cooling to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature. Also, the total amount of energy generated through solar PV remains higher than the total energy consumption, which makes the building energy self-sufficient. Additionally, the same parameters result in a high level of thermal comfort, which improve the occupants’ comfort and well-being. The findings indicate that incorporating appropriate passive strategies and renewable technology during the design stage has a beneficial effect on the entire building performance. Some good practices have also been highlighted and documented in this study. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Building Pathology and Rehabilitation Springer Journals

Abstract

Buildings are designed to meet and improve the quality of life of the occupants. During the last decades, standards on building construction have risen sharply to integrate new, ambitious demands regarding energy efficiency and thermal comfort in the design procedure. The importance of understanding the performance of a proposed building project is undeniable nowadays. This paper presents a building performance assessment of the proposed demonstration center in Wuhai. The analysis of this paper focus on thermal comfort and energy performance through the application of passive solutions and renewable technology. The purpose of this study is to predict energy efficiency and thermal comfort through an effective simulation assessment of a proposed project at the design stage. Using parametric study, it is concluded that in this well-designed project, when appropriate building parameters are used, very little amount of energy is required for heating and cooling to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature. Also, the total amount of energy generated through solar PV remains higher than the total energy consumption, which makes the building energy self-sufficient. Additionally, the same parameters result in a high level of thermal comfort, which improve the occupants’ comfort and well-being. The findings indicate that incorporating appropriate passive strategies and renewable technology during the design stage has a beneficial effect on the entire building performance. Some good practices have also been highlighted and documented in this study.
