Infrastructure for the production of construction materials and anaylsis of the needs and potentialities in the building sector
Policies supporting passive & bioclimatic approach, and the se of local building materials in NW-Africa and EU
Discussion about successful or promising policies in promoting highly comfortable buildings with minimal energy need for heating and cooling
Reviews and discusses methodologies for weather indicators, weather datasets, and production of future weather files
Availability & reliability of weather files to represent current and future weather conditions and to improve the design of buildings
Analysis of the effect of future weather on the performance of a case study in different climates, focusing on when, where, and how passive design strategies are affected.
This report investigates the potential of different studied bioclimatic materials as construction materials in Europe and Africa.
Review of 12 fully documented case studies of bioclimatic buildings located in EU & Africa, with data collected from technical experts.
It lists support materials and tools developed within the ABC 21 project, to design new buildings characterized by low energy consumption.
