TY - CHAP A1 - Abimbola Olukemi Windapo ED1 - Eng Hwa Yap Y1 - 2017-01-18 PY - 2017 T1 - Managing Energy Demand in Buildings through Appropriate Equipment Specification and Use N2 - This book discusses energy efficient buildings and the role they play in our efforts to address climate change, energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions by considering buildings and the construction sector's unique position along a critical path to decarbonisation from a multi-perspective and holistic viewpoint. Topics covered in the book range from daylighting, building topology comparison, building envelope design, zero energy homes in hot arid regions, life-cycle considerations and energy efficiency analysis to managing energy demand through equipment selection. Each chapter addresses an important aspect of energy efficient building and serves as a vital building block towards constructing a timely and relevant body of knowledge in energy efficient buildings.
