Low Energy Cooling for Sustainable Buildings
by Ursula Eicker

Low Energy Cooling for Sustainable Buildings provides a complete overview of low energy cooling systems for buildings, covering a wide range of existing and emerging sustainable energy technologies in one comprehensive volume.

Inside the reader will find valuable insights into:

  • the energy demand of residential and office buildings
  • facades and summer performance of buildings
  • passive cooling strategies
  • geothermal cooling
  • active thermal cooling technologies, including absorption cooling, desiccant cooling and new developments in low power chillers
  • sustainable building operation using simulation
Low Energy Cooling for Sustainable Buildings is unique in including a large set of experimental results from years of monitoring actual building and energy plants, as well as detailed laboratory and simulation analyses.
