Abstract

There is a global need for a more sustainable building development. About 50% of energy is used in buildings indicating that buildings provide a considerable potential for operational energy savings. Studies were conducted with the following objectives:

  • to perform a state-of-the-art review of responsive building elements, of integrated building concepts and of environmental performance assessment methods
  • to improve and optimize responsive building elements
  • to develop and optimize new building concepts with integration of responsive building elements, HVAC-systems as well as natural and renewable energy strategies
  • to develop guidelines and procedures for estimation of environmental performance of responsive building elements and integrated building concepts

This paper introduces the ideas of this collaborative work and discusses its usefulness for Hong Kong and China. Special focus was put on the description of the climate in China and a review of barriers to implement building elements and of integrated building concepts.
