Abstract

The energy saving and electricity production schemes for a school building in hot and humid climate were studied by a building energy package eQUEST. High-performance building envelops, energy-efficient air-conditioning systems and lighting fixtures were employed to save energy consumption and building integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) panels were adopted to meet the energy needs. The annual electricity demand was 300 MWh, and 97.5% of it can be supplied by the vertical BIPV facades. Further PV installations on the roof can generate more electricity to balance the energy use. The results show that school block is possible to achieve the zero building energy consumption.
