Abstract

This paper studies a number of energy-efficient measures and renewable energy (RE) facilities in creating zero energy buildings (ZEBs). Passive building schemes include energy-efficient building envelope designs, raising the thermostat settings during the hot summer, using natural ventilation in circulation area and installing energy-efficient light fittings with daylight–linked lighting controls. Opaque building integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) are adopted to generate electricity for achieving the ZEB. The analysis was conducted based on a building simulation software eQUEST. The results show that ZEB can be achievable in hot and humid climate areas.
