Passive solar heating and passive cooling—approaches known as natural conditioning—provide comfort throughout the year by reducing, or eliminating, the need for fossil fuel. Yet while heat from sunlight and ventilation from breezes is free for the taking, few modern architects or builders really understand the principles involved. Now Dan Chiras, author of the popular book The Natural House, brings those principles up to date for a new generation of solar enthusiasts. The techniques required to heat and cool a building passively have been used for thousands of years. Early societies such as the Native American Anasazis and the ancient Greeks perfected designs that effectively exploited these natural processes. The Greeks considered anyone who didn't use passive solar to heat a home to be a barbarian! In the United States, passive solar architecture experienced a major resurgence of interest in the 1970s in response to crippling oil embargoes. With grand enthusiasm but with scant knowledge (and sometimes little common sense), architects and builders created a wide variety of solar homes. Some worked pretty well, but looked more like laboratories than houses. Others performed poorly, overheating in the summer because of excessive or misplaced windows and skylights, and growing chilly in the colder months because of insufficient thermal mass and insulation and poor siting. In The Solar House, Dan Chiras sets the record straight on the vast potential for passive heating and cooling. Acknowledging the good intentions of misguided solar designers in the past, he highlights certain egregious—and entirely avoidable—errors. More importantly, Chiras explains in methodical detail how today's home builders can succeed with solar designs. Now that energy efficiency measures including higher levels of insulation and multi-layered glazing have become standard, it is easier than ever before to create a comfortable and affordable passive solar house that will provide year-round comfort in any climate. Moreover, since modern building materials and airtight construction methods sometimes result in air-quality and even toxicity problems, Chiras explains state-of-the-art ventilation and filtering techniques that complement the ancient solar strategies of thermal mass and daylighting. Chiras also explains the new diagnostic aids available in printed worksheet or software formats, allowing readers to generate their own design schemes.

The complete resource on performing sustainable renovations for both Historic and modern existing buildings This forward-looking and insightful guide explores how the sustainable renovation of existing buildings presents great opportunities for initiating extensive changes in the performance of the built environment. Great examples of existing building upgrades are examined, illustrating how to do sustainable renovations, along with current design approaches for radically improving the functionality of existing prewar, postwar, and late modern buildings. Sustainable Renovation saves its key focus for institutional and commercial buildings, but discusses the challenges they pose within a global scope that encompasses all building practices. Some of the discussions in this book include: The significance of energy and resource demands by the building sector and the urgency of reducing loads in existing buildings Management, design, and construction approaches to achieve major modernization in occupied buildings International case studies that focus on methods and benefits of successful sustainable transformations of existing building performance Repurposing buildings to preserve style and add performance remains a work in progress as designers and builders discover new methods for improving sustainable practices and standards. With incremental modernization and operations strategies available for immediate implementation, this book demonstrates the different ways of thinking necessary when considering and attempting the integration of sustainable concepts into existing buildings—and enables readers to rethink the world that's built around them.

Dieses Standardwerk stellt die physikalisch-technischen Grundlagen und die aktuelle Systemtechnik für Anlagen zur Nutzung regenerativer Energien zur Strom- und Wärmebereitstellung dar. Außerdem gibt es einen umfassenden Überblick über die Charakteristik des erneuerbaren Energieangebots. Ausgehend davon werden Kennzahlen für eine ökonomische und ökologische Bewertung zugänglich gemacht und die Potenziale der regenerativen Energien und deren derzeitige Nutzung in Deutschland diskutiert. Im Einzelnen werden die folgenden Optionen zur Nutzung des regenerativen Energieangebots aufgezeigt: - passive Solarenergienutzung, - solarthermische Wärmebereitstellung, - photovoltaische und solarthermische Stromerzeugung (u. a. Solarfarm- und Solarturmkraftwerke), - Stromerzeugung aus Windenergie und Wasserkraft, - Wärmebereitstellung mithilfe von Wärmepumpen aus Umgebungsluft und oberflächennaher Erdwärme, - Strom- und Wärmebereitstellung aus der Energie des tiefen Untergrunds. Zusätzlich werden kursorisch die Möglichkeiten einer Nutzung der Meeresenergien dargestellt. Nicht diskutiert wird dagegen die Energiegewinnung aus Biomasse. Für die 5. Auflage wurden u. a. die photovoltaische Stromerzeugung vollständig aktualisiert, die passive und aktive solarthermische Wärmegewinnung umfassend überarbeitet, die Windkraftnutzung einschließlich der Offshore-Windstromerzeugung dem aktuellen Stand der Technik angepasst und die Möglichkeiten einer geothermischen Strom- und Wärmeerzeugung neu strukturiert dargestellt. Außerdem wurden die Grundlagen des regenerativen Energieangebots erweitert. Neben seiner Eignung für die universitäre und außeruniversitäre Lehre bietet das Buch Entscheidungsträgern in Energiewirtschaft, Politik, Verwaltung und Administration sowie Wissenschaftlern und Beratern eine fundierte, verlässliche und hochaktuelle Wissensbasis.
