Technologies for Household Energy Saving
- Prediction of time variation of total utility demand in residence with stochastic nature
- Forcing effects on momentum, heat and passive scalars enhanced by urban surface layer
- Estimation of space cooling requirement in buildings located in tropic and sub-tropic regions
- Holistic evaluation of passive/active building designs for energy saving
Various activities done inside buildings contribute significant fraction of the energy consumption and CO2 emission in the world, and holistic countermeasures for the energy saving in buildings are essential for the global warming issue.
Under these circumstances, we have conducted a series of researches from a viewpoint of building environmental engineering to develop a holistic numerical simulator of the stochastically time-varying utility demand of residence, such as thermal requirement of air-conditioning, electricity, city water, and hot water.
