FEASIBILITY OF NEARLY-ZERO ENERGY BUILDING RETROFITS BY USING RENEWABLE ENERGY SOURCES IN AN EDUCATIONAL BUILDING

Keywords: Nearly-zero energy buildings, Educational buildings,, Renewable energy

Abstract

Dissemination of education is vital especially in developing countries like Turkey. Besides, proper use of energy resources is required while dissemination of education is ensured. Considering the regions where energy is limited, renewable energy sources should be used to achieve the goal of a zero-energy building. Moreover, an increase of smart technologies has potantial in order to decrease energy consumption in educational buildings. This paper aims to investigate renewable energy sources to decrease energy consumption to achieve nearly-zero energy building goal by implementing different energy efficient retrofitting scenarios. The retroffitting scenarios are based on renewable energy sources and are presented for an educational building located in Ankara-Turkey, through a Building Energy Simulation Tool, Design Builder Software. In order to develop an accurate model, educational building is monitored and the model is calibrated. Then, various energy efficient retrofitting scenarios are defined such as implementing PV panels, solar collectors and adding wind turbines for electricity generation.
