Energy Audit of Building Systems Book Review:

Increasing awareness of energy use-and waste-places additional onus on building managers, operators, and engineers, already bearing considerable responsibility for operating cost containment. Fortunately, research, technological developments, and practical experience provide a number of procedures and techniques that can make a significant impact on a building's energy use and expense. Energy Audit of Building Systems offers a systematic, engineering approach to a wide range of measures and opportunities for saving energy and reducing operating costs in both residential and commercial buildings. The author first provides general tools and procedures for performing building energy audits, including economic analysis, utility rate structures, and building energy simulation. His focus then turns to various subsystems, exploring the techniques and technologies that can reduce energy use or operating costs. Each chapter includes simplified calculation methods used to evaluate the effectiveness of various efficiency measures. Other books on energy efficiency and management are either out of date or offer only qualitative descriptions of energy conservation measures. Energy Audit of Building Systems incorporates the latest energy efficiency technologies, precise calculation procedures, and virtual step-by-step guidelines on evaluating, analyzing, and improving upon energy efficiency in buildings.

Energy Audit of Building Systems Book Review:

Buildings account for almost half of total primary energy use and related greenhouse emissions worldwide. Although current energy systems are improving, they still fall disappointingly short of meeting acceptable limits for efficiency. Well-trained energy auditors are essential to the success of building energy efficiency programs—and Energy Audit of Building Systems: An Engineering Approach, Second Edition updates a bestselling guide to helping them improve their craft. This book outlines a systematic, proven strategy to employ analysis methods to assess the effectiveness of a wide range of technologies and techniques that can save energy and reduce operating costs in residential and commercial buildings. Useful to auditors, managers, and students of energy systems, material is organized into 17 self-contained chapters, each detailing a specific building subsystem or energy efficiency technology. Rooted in established engineering principles, this volume: Explores state-of-the-art techniques and technologies to reduce energy consumption in buildings Lays out innovative energy efficiency technologies and strategies, as well as more established methods, to estimate energy savings from conservation measures Provides several calculation examples to outline applications of methods To help readers execute and optimize real building energy audits, the author presents several case studies of existing detailed energy audit reports. These include results from field testing, building energy simulation, and retrofit analysis of existing buildings, with recommendations based on sound economic analysis. Examining various subsystems, such as lighting, heating, and cooling systems, it provides an overview of basic engineering methods used to verify and measure actual energy savings attributed to energy efficiency projects. The author presents simplified calculation methods to evaluate their effectiveness and ultimately improve on them. Ideal either as a professional reference or a text for continuing education courses, this book fortifies readers’ understanding of building energy systems, paving the way for future breakthroughs.

Urban Microclimate Modelling for Comfort and Energy Studies Book Review:

​​This book discusses urban microclimate and heat-related risks in urban areas, brought on by the combination of global climate change effects and local modification of climate determined by extensive urbanization such as the ‘Urban heat island’ phenomenon. This matter is relevant to almost all urbanized areas in the world, where the increase of urban population and air temperature is expected to endanger both the overall health of the population and the energy supply for the functioning of urban systems. The book details the inter-relationship between urban morphology, microclimate and building energy performance and presents a multidisciplinary approach that brings together Urban Climatology, Engineering and Architectural knowledge to support the development of reliable models and tools for research and practice. This book is a useful tool for architects and building energy modelers, urban planners and geographers who need a practical guide to realize basic urban microclimate simulation for use in both academic research and planning practice.
