The main content of this course is the development of a climate design for a public building – from the ambition of energy neutrality or beyond (energy producing). An energy potential analysis will be executed and the New Stepped Strategy (reduce, reuse, produce) will be used to reach this goal. The design will be quantified, using energy performance calculations.
Following this course you will:
- develop an integrated energy-neutral climate design
- use software to calculate the energy performance
- calculate the energy usage of a building
Students doing AR1AE010 (EXTREME) will use their own design to make it energy-neutral; others will use a reference design.
