Description

Increased environmental awareness and legislation have begunshifting the emphasis from high-energy cooling strategies, in whichfull air conditioning was considered essential, to low-energy"greener methods" of achieving equally comfortable conditions inbuilding interiors. Cooling is a major use of energy in commercialbuildings, making a significant contribution to the emission ofgreenhouse gases and to global warming. The papers presented in this volume explore the currentstate-of-the-art developments in the application of latesttechnologies such as: * Night ventilation for cooling * Slab cooling * Desiccant dehumidification and evaporative cooling * Chiled ceilings with displacement ventilation * Mixed-mode ventilation systems * Case studies and building examples Low Energy Cooling Technologies for Buildings also covers designand control requirements and the tools and techniques needed forthe successful integration of these technologies into the buildingstructure.
