Basics of energy saving building regulation

Language: English
Course description

The aim of the course is to present the in-depth and systematized provisions of the theory and practice of improving the energy efficiency of buildings in the North. The emphasis is on the formation of professional competencies in improving the thermal protection characteristics of the enclosing structures of buildings. The student should study the specifics of designing energy-efficient buildings, which will allow us to correctly assess the nature, features and prospects for the development of energy-efficient, eco-friendly and energy-saving buildings in the North.

The course is designed for bachelors in the profile of 'Energy Efficiency and Ecological Building', nevertheless it also meets the needs of many students with other interests, as retraining in the training process, the refresher course.

Prerequisites

To complete this course, you need knowledge of the disciplines Engineering systems of buildings and Architecture of energy efficient buildings

Objectives

At the end of this course the students have to:

Know:

  • provisions of legislation in the field of energy conservation;
  • standard methods for assessing the thermal protection characteristics of enclosing structures.

Be able to:

  • determine the heat-shielding characteristics of enclosing structures;
  • apply modern methods of thermophysical calculation of building enveloping structures;
  • practice standard methods for testing enclosing structures;
  • assess the impact of energy-saving measures on the amount of specific heat consumption for heating buildings.
