Summary
Deepening the knowledge of building thermal technology, energy and building energy efficiency of buildings. · Methods of energy evaluation of buildings, legislative requirements. National calculation tool. Software applications for energy and economic calculations. Simulation of the impact of changes in mode energy consumption of the object. Increasing energy end-use efficiency. Design of energy-saving measures.
Learning Outcomes of the Course Unit
The aim is to deepen professional knowledge and skills in the construction of heating technology and energy efficiency of buildings. Improved energy end-use efficiency helps to reduce primary energy consumption, reduce CO2 and other greenhouse gas emissions and thereby to prevent dangerous climate change.
