  1. 1. Low-energy buildings energy use, indoor climate and market diffusion

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH Royal Institute of Technology

    Author : Johannes Persson; Stefan Grönkvist; Svend Svendsen; [2014]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; building energy simulations; energy efficiency gap; energy use; indoor climate; low-energy buildings;

    Abstract : Low-energy buildings have, in recent years, gained attention and moved towards a large-scale introduction in the residential sector. During this process, national and international criteria for energy use in buildings have become stricter and the European Union has through the Energy Performance of Buildings Directive imposed on member states to adapt their building regulations for ‘Nearly Zero Energy Buildings’, which by 2021 should be standard for new buildings.

  2. 2. Controlling Indoor Climate. Passive cooling of residential buildings in hot-humid climates in China

    University dissertation from Department of Building Science, Lund Institute of Technology

    Author : Zhiwu Wang; [1996]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Byggnadsteknik; Building construction; China; hot humid climate; thermal comfort; Computational Fluid Dynamics CFD; residential buildings; roofs; indoor climate; passive cooling; cross-ventilation;

    Abstract : Overheating is a paramount problem in residential buildings in hot-humid climates in China during summer. This study aims to deal with the overheating problem and the problem of poor air quality in dwellings. READ MORE

  3. 3. Thermal models of buildings : determination of temperatures, heating and cooling loads : theories, models and computer programs

    University dissertation from Department of Building Science, Lund Institute of Technology

  5. 5. Modelling Life Cycle Cost for Indoor Climate Systems

    University dissertation from Byggnadsfysik LTH, Lunds Tekniska Högskola

    Author : Dennis Johansson; [2005]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; HVAC; life cycle cost; energy; Energy research; Energiforskning; Byggnadsteknik; Building construction; indoor climate system; ventilation; maintenance; LCC;

    Abstract : The indoor climate system, which serves a building with a proper indoor air quality and thermal comfort, has been predominantly designed based on the initial cost. A life cycle approach could improve both the economic and environmental performance since the energy use could decrease. READ MORE
