1. Background 2. Aspects of Building Energy Use 3. Energy Audits 4. Techniques for Reducing Energy Consumption 5. Instrumentation and Measurements 6. Organisation and Implementation 7. Legislation and Grants 8. Controls and Building Management Systems 9. Case studies
Summary: "Inefficient energy use in buildings is both increasingly expensive and unsustainable. Indeed, the reduction of the energy consumption of existing buildings is as least as important as the design of new low-energy buildings. Controlling energy use is one thing, but it is important to assess or estimate it, and to understand the range of interventions for reducing its use and the methods for assessing the cost Read more...
