Discover how building design and occupancy determines the energy demand in buildings and learn how to (re)design low energy buildings. Building design strongly influences the quantity of heating, cooling and electricity needed during building operation.
Learn and explore key scientific principles, technologies, and analysis techniques for designing comfortable indoor environments while reducing energy use and associated climate change effects. In this course, you'll be introduced to a range of technologies and analysis techniques for designing comfortable, resource-efficient [...]
Learn how to realize thermally comfortable and healthy buildings and how energy technologies impact comfort. Even in the well-accepted indoor temperature range of 20-24°C (68-75°F), people can experience thermal discomfort. Complaints about the indoor thermal environment are one of the major complaints building and facility managers have to deal [...]
The course provides the main information about technological systems and tools for designing climate responsive buildings in East African Community (EAC) and other tropical countries with similar climates.
The course provide the basic necessary information for designing climate responsive buildings, aiming to minimise energy demand and to achieve thermal and visual comfort in EAC (East African Community) and other tropical countries with similar climates.
