Passive Design Ideas For The Passive design is a major part of environmental design, and approaches utilising several techniques and strategies that can be employed to the buildings in all types of climates around the world The concept ensures optimum sustainability for the entire community through “zero emission” buildings, passive design strategies, active solar systems, and energy efficient appliances.

+ 32   “Passive design depends a lot on the way the building is orientated,” Vujovic says. “So, the most successful energy-efficient designs are facing south or north to allow better solar energy management.” Orientating a building to take advantage of how the sun moves across the sky is the easiest and most effective passive design :// Our Net-Zero/Passive House designs achieve all these things.

Living in a Passive House means living in a space that is naturally warmer, healthier and more comfortable. This comfort inside your home is unmatched because of the way energy efficiency solutions are integrated into the architectural ://   The energy conscious traditional Indian way of life and architecture evolved out of the great timeless vedic philosophies, statuary demand of energy conservation passive design techniques in buildings.

Modern buildings reveal inadequate Bhopal and Shri R Tiwari is a practising Architect   Essentially, solar passive design is about creating an internal environment which maintains a consistent, comfortable temperature throughout the year, utilising the free resources of the sun, wind and a considered design.

It can vastly reduce reliance on mechanical heating and cooling, not to mention reduce your energy :// Passive energy-saving technology uses non-mechanical equipment interventions to reduce a building's energy consumption. The book selects various cases to analyse their energy-saving features and shows readers some most representative passive energy-saving technologies at present, including rational orientation, building construction, building envelope, and openings for natural :// /sustainability/product/   Passive solar design takes advantage of a building’s site, climate, and materials to minimize energy use.

A well-designed passive solar home first reduces heating and cooling loads through energy-efficiency strategies and then meets those reduced loads in whole or part with solar energy. Because of the small heating loads of modern homes it is very important to avoid oversizing south-facing /passive-solar-home-design.

Passive design responds to local climate and site conditions to maximise building users comfort and health while minimising energy use.

It can also reduce energy use and environmental impacts such as greenhouse gas   2•Energy efficiency in architectur e: an overview The book covers 44 case studies on energy and resource efficient architec-tural projects in India”.

Each project highlights the energy efficiency meas-ures, e.g.

Because a Passive House building is airtight, it requires balanced and controlled ventilation with high-quality heat exchange to provide fresh air at all times. All the building infor-mation is entered into a design tool—the 1 Passive Heating: Using building design to harness solar radiation and capture the internal heat gains is the only passive way to add free thermal energy to a building.

Passive solar heating combines a well-insulated envelope with other elements that minimize energy losses and harness and store solar gains to offset the energy requirements of Homes heated by the sun's free heat.

Passive Solar Houses are aptly named because there are no wires, panels or batteries and nothing to break down. It's just about design, and it isn't a new concept. Humans around the globe have been incorporating passive solar design features into their homes for thousands of years.

Passive design is a sustainable building standard that responds to local climate and site conditions to maintain a comfortable temperature in the home.

It focuses on renewable sources of energy such as the sun and wind to provide household heating, cooling, ventilation and lighting. Through passive design, energy usage is dramatically reduced, temperature fluctuations are fewer, Passive House Design is Our Specialty.

At ZED, our forte lies in creating healthy, comfortable, and sustainable passive homes and buildings. In addition to making Passive House alignment the norm, we also use Passive House Planning Package (PHPP) and WUFI Passive as the energy modeling tools for our design :// An energy efficient passive design helps to improve thermal comfort with minimized use of energy.

Below is the list of aspects for energy efficient buildings that has been arr ived at from Image Courtesy of The Passive Solar Energy Book 8- System Selection: Each project possesses specific design requirements, which is why different projects require different ://   Passive Design regards the particular way to construct a building using the natural movement of heat and air, passive solar gain and cooling in order to maintain a good internal comfort.

Through the use of passive solutions it is possible to eliminate, or at least reduce, the use of mechanical systems and the energy demand by 80% as well as the This helped us deliver an energy efficient design and will result in a healthier indoor environment for the client.” Anna Beznogova, Certified Passive House Designer — Intern Architect “ Passive House is a design mindset that informs the way you approach a project from the start.

It makes you more conscious about building ://   "Passive house is the radical notion that you can reliably and consistently design a building that works for humans," explained Barry.
