Influence of probabilistic climate projections on building energy simulation
The paper describes methodologies for incorporating dat from climate projections into building energy analysis
Generation of typical weather data using the ISO Test Reference Year (TRY) method for major cities of South Korea
Computer simulation of buildings and solar energy systems is being used increasingly in energy assessments and design. Simulation often requires hourly weather data. Such data sets are the Test Reference Years (TRYs), ...
Simulating urban heat island effects with climate change on a Manchester house
This article presents a methodology for determining the internal temperatures of a post-1919 mid-terrace house for the present-day and a future (2050) climate. The Meteorological Office, Hadley Centre regional climate model ...
Evaluation of Oil/Gas Infrastructure Exposure to Climate Change Burdens in the Niger Delta
Climate change extreme weather events such as flood, rising temperature and windstorms pose significant threats to oil and gas infrastructure in the Niger. Due to a gap in evaluation of assets exposure in the region, little ...
Operational vs. Embodied Emissions in Buildings - A Review of Current Trends
Global awareness of environmental impacts such as climate change and depletion of ozone layer has increased significantly in the last few years and the implication for emissions reductions in buildings are widely acknowledged. ...
Local support for community action on climate change: lessons from the Communities Cutting Carbon project.
(The Centre for Collaboration and Partnership, University of Brighton, 2011)
Action by local communities on climate change has been recognised by researchers and policymakers as having great potential to support a transition towards a low-carbon UK economy. Support for such action from community ...
The Routledge Handbook of Energy in Asia
This edited volume presents a comprehensive review of energy development in Asia over the past three decades. It covers supply and demand, current policy issues and Asia's efforts towards a low carbon pathway in the future. ...
Vulnerability and resilience in energy efficient homes: thermal response to heatwaves
(Passive Low Energy Energy Architecture (PLEA) conference, 2017-07-03)
During heat waves, people experience both external and internal temperatures, but they are likely to spend most of their time indoors. This situation is aggravated by the fact that the majority of excess-deaths during a ...
