Design of Energy Efficient Air-Conditioned Buildings: A Challenging Era

Essam E. Khalil

The Egyptian community in its path for rapid development is endeavoring to make all necessary and appropriate measures to enhance the efficiency of energy utilization and increase the beneficiation of the energy resources. The energy production, transmission, distribution and utilization efficiency becomes a vital factor and measure of national development. The different governmental organization was established earlier to be responsible for energy planning and efficient utilization, information dissemination and capacity building. Throughout the Nation Energy resources are widely used and consumption rates are in general exceeding the International accepted values. The use and application of new and renewable energy sources can be harnessed to design, construct and operate a solar building of moderate size for desert applications. Endeavor to prepare models for expressing requirements on indoor air quality, thermal comfort in winter and when appropriate in summer, visual comfort, etc is targeted with a common procedure for an “energy performance certificate”. Ultimately it is needed to design, construct and operate a solar Building that can meet the rural and desert requirements and save the diminishing fossil fuel sources.
