AbstractThis annual course focuses on physical principles, concepts and methods for the efficient and sustainable heating, cooling and ventilation of buildings. Interactions of energy, GHG emissions and climate with architectural and urban design will be investigated.
ObjectiveAt the end of this one-year course, students will be able to estimate the impact of energy, GHG emissions and climate on a building. You will be able to independently apply the steps of an integrated design process to your own project and master selected tools from the A/S knowledge platform (Link). Future own designs can be supplemented and enriched with potentials from energy and climate analyses.
ContentStudents work independently in groups on a series of tasks. With the help of digital tools, the steps of an integrated design process are played through in a case study. The obligatory group tasks are supported with short input presentations, lecture notes and feedback sessions. The following topics are covered in the first semester of this annual course:
1. Local potentials
2. Demand
3. Supply
Lecture notesThe slides of the lecture on the course moodle serve as lecture notes and are available as download.
LiteratureA list of relevant literature is available at the chair.
Prerequisites / NoticeThis course can only be taken if Energy and Climate Design II is taken in the following semester, as the group work is connected and extends throughout the year.
