Buildings consume significant large amount of energy for cooling, heating, ventilation and lighting in buildings to create desirable thermal comfort conditions. In warm and tropical climates excess solar gain results in high cooling energy consumption. The depletion of conventional energy and high cost of non-conventional energy enforces a demand for energy conscious designs of buildings. Natural and passive cooling uses nonmechanical methods to maintain a comfortable indoor temperature… Expand
Increase Energy Efficiency and Comfort in Homes by Incorporating Passive Solar Design Features
Sunlight admitted into a building impacts on the building energy consumption in different ways in different seasons. In summer, excessive solar heat gain results in greater energy consumption due toExpand
Impact of external shading strategy on energy performance of multi-story hotel building in hot-humid climate
Abstract Passive design strategies are the most feasible and economic ways of energy and thermal management in buildings, if appropriately incorporated at the conceptual design stage. Though manyExpand
Optimum Orientation of a Mutually-Shaded Group of Buildings with Respect to External Solar Radiation
External, mainly solar, load can constitute up to 80% of the energy consumed by Heating, Ventilating and AirConditioning (HVAC) systems in buildings. Proportional attention is rarely given byExpand
Building energy efficiency: Passive technology or active technology?
Building sector accounts for a significant part of total energy consumption. In Europe, almost 40% of energy use is by residential and commercial buildings. Space conditioning accounts for 40% to 60%Expand
