Net-zero Emission Buildings – Maximum Energy Efficiency and Comfort for Users

blended course
when 1 July 2024 - 26 July 2024
language English
duration 4 weeks
credits 4 EC
fee EUR 1200

Currently, the building design sector is facing a number of challenges for engineers related to the European climate neutral policy , as well as the climate change. The proposed course meets these challenges. The main goal of the course is to present the holistic approach to the design of the net-zero energy buildings with special emphasis on the passive solutions, utilisation of renewable energy in modern building installations, application of heat recovery systems and maintaining thermal comfort of the users. The subject covers solutions based on sustainable design including solar thermal collectors, air-to-water and ground-source heat pumps, energy recovery heat exchangers in air handling units, etc. Students will have an opportunity to measure the air and physical parameters with the high quality laboratory equipment and familiarise with the range of engineering tools (EDSL TAS, PVGIS, TRNSYS and others) for building and installations’ energy simulations.
