    The Rachel Carson book, “Silent Spring”, published in , is considered to be one of the first initial efforts to describe sustainable development as related to green building. The green building movement in the U.S. originated from the need and desire for more energy efficient and environmentally friendly construction practices. There. Planning Successful Rehabilitation Projects. Acquired Significance and Standard 4. Continued Historic Use and Standard 1. buildings have been rehabilitated in a way that both met the Standards and received recognition for incorporating energy-efficient and environmentally-friendly products and systems. Several of these have also achieved.

    The EPBD aims at promoting the improvement of the energy performance of residential and nonresidential buildings within the Union, taking into account outdoor climatic - and local conditions, as well as indoor climate requirements and cost-effectiveness.

ABSTRACT. The performance evaluation of the RPI passive solar Visitors Information Center (VIC) has an actual yearly total energy use of MBtu/yr, or on a per unit floor area basis, kBtu/ft represents a 70% reduction in total energy consumption compared to a similar non-solar building designed under the same energy conservation building code.

The main objective of this study is to evaluate three essential efficiency aspects – structural behaviour, energy consumption and construction cost – for residential buildings that use three different structural materials, namely, wood, steel and concrete; the materials and the systems focussed upon in this study are used in Eastern Europe Cited by: The most inexpensive energy is the energy not consumed in the first place.

Design that incorporates high levels of thermal insulation, whole building air tightness, high performance windows, passive solar design techniques and energy saving technologies will create buildings that are more energy efficient and comfortable.

CertainTeed Building. Energy-Efficient Industrial Systems: Evaluation and Implementation is an extremely practical and handy guide to have with you work in the industrial industry. It contains ten chapters and over pages of information that analyze and discuss the best practices for reducing energy consumption and making sure your systems are as efficient as they can : Looseleaf.

FIGURE U.S. residential energy use trends. Primary energy use (accounting for losses in electricity generation and transmission and distribution, and for fuels, such as natural gas, used on-site) has increased faster than delivered energy use (which does not account for such losses, but does include fuels used on-site) because use of electricity has increased faster than use of other fuels.

It is intended (1) to help analysts determine the appropriate approach or type of. The Building Technologies Office (BTO) uses performance metrics to standardize the measurement and characterization of energy performance in commercial buildings.

These metrics help inform the effectiveness of energy-efficiency measures in existing buildings. According to the Virginia Energy Plan, residential energy consumption makes up almost 25% of the total energy used. Within that amount, electricity comprises about 58% of consumption, just over 28% is natural gas consumption, about 9% is petroleum usage and % is biomass consumption.

Energy efficient building discussed in research papers examine what it takes to construct buildings in light of conserving natural resources and energy. Energy efficient building research papers illustrate that building with energy efficiency in mind reduces long-term. Better Buildings Residential Office of Energy Efficiency & Renewable Energy energy-efficient existing homes in the United States.

Organizations that engage with Better Buildings Residential are able to share best practices, access valuable resources, and expand. Also performed is the analysis on the primary energy payback time and the CO2 equivalent saving in order to evaluate the performance of novel energy systems to verify the feasibility.

View Show. Energy-efficient buildings may also require specific architectural solutions and further research should consider architectural and aesthetic aspects in the evaluation. Research on the use and operation of energy-efficient buildings is increasing, but there is still a need to give more detailed attention to different ways of providing Cited by: systems, elevators, computers, servers, security, package of counter and fire monitoring.

Therefore, solutions of solving higher energy cost will be suggested from research analysis in library: Firstly, high energy-consuming libraries should be reconstructed by energy management contract (EMC) thereby reducing large expense of energy.

Energy Efficiency is one of the key principles of Green Architecture. Energy Efficient Structures can be described as the structures that involve the use of less energy intensive materials required for the construction. The utilization of energy resources by the users of the building also determines the Energy Efficient of the Built Structure.

Fig. 1 Objectives of energy efficient building Benefits of energy efficient buildings Environment and health: Energy efficiency is a terrific resource, fastest and cheapest way to significantly reduce energy requirement and provides for numerous additional benefits. In addition to reducing emissions, efficient buildings enhance energy.Modular blocks of flats built with large prefabricated panels have become widespread in most of central and East-European countries particularly in the 80es, populating large-scale neighbourhoods.

In Romania are representing about 37% of the total fund of apartment blocks, being present in most of the cities. The high percentage of thermal bridges and reduced design thermal resistance of the Cited by: 1.The consumption of building energy will be reduced in the future development, and the development of energy-efficient buildings will be a trend.

The buildings have been divided into four classes, like the residential building, the public building, the industrial building and the agricultural building.
