Abstract

This study by Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE examined impacts of passive and active measures to reduce energy demand in buildings in Thailand to advance (nearly) zero-energy or plus-energy buildings as the building concept for sustainable future development . The simulation results found that using a combination of measures could reduce energy demand by over 60%. Most measures analyzed had payback periods of less than six years and are economically feasible. Presentations from workshops conducted in Bangkok about the regulatory framework and planning reliability needed to advance a zero or plus-energy building concept are included.
