The advantages of renewable energy resources are almost no environmental stress and low energy costs. However, there are disadvantages also: small or fluctuating output levels mean that large areas are required for energy generation and storage and this leads to higher initial investment costs. 4 show output density, ener gy yield and heating values for different Energy Yield in kWh/m2a Performance density in kW/m2 Coal, oil and gas are our most important raw materials – they are the so-called primary energy sources.
This applies especially when the buildings are equipped with high quality climate control systems. Surveys show that buildings that have been optimised from a constructional point of view, and are equipped with less technology, are generally well accepted by their occupants if indoor temperatures do not stray too far from optimum levels. Often, such types of buildings are very economical. Purposely, adherence to optimal indoor conditions is foregone for between 3 to 5% of occupancy time but without disregarding comfort consideration.
On the reverse, this also applies for minimum temperatures: in Northern Europe, temperatures of 20°C are frequently perceived as being too cool in winter while, in Southern nations, indoor temperatures of 18°C – on account of their rare occurrence – are accepted by a large part of 49 Manual for the operation of - Window ventilation - Marginal Strip Activation - Ventilation - Solar Protection - Cooling and/or Heating Ceiling Energy conscious Cost-effective Supportive to comfort Especially energy-saving operation by YOU the population.
