Innovation for Cool Earth Forum
Institute of Applied energy
This study delivers three recommendations: - Sharing among the entire society the importance of the concept that net energy consumption in buildings should be zero; - Involvement of stakeholders in government, municipalities, and the private sector at an early stage (taking into account building lifetimes and diversity of the parties concerned); and - Sharing of international technologies and policies for their diffusion based on the roadmap. This study proposes a roadmap for each climate zone where not only temperature but also humidity was added as an important factor. Fields of technologies, are devided for classification, into four groups of technologies: Active (equipment to be installed), Passive (building structures), Renewable Integration (integration of renewable energy to the building), and Energy Management, and then indicated the estimated time for realization of each technology group elements.
