Course Description

Course Description: The class is mainly focused on energy efficient building concept and design criteria heating, cooling, ventilation and lighting systems Building integreted renewable systems such as photovoltaic, wind turbine and solar thermal cost analysis methods and relevant legislation for buildings in Turkey. Course Objectives: To examine a building project based on energy efficient design criteria to meet its own energy zero energy building. This course is dedicated to high-level research and design concerned with zero energy buildings. It will be carried out together with an international colloboration to examine geografical, cultural and social diferences by working on a same project. To teach set of viable building system packages, renewable energy systems and their integration possibilities into buildings. To establish a “best practice” approach by setting an environment of multiple viewpoints, experiences and analysis methodologies all within the context of team learning. To teach the existing market developments, preferred designs, trends in buying and preferred designs and financial market availability of funding. Clearly business principles are practiced to show real investors the project is feasible and viable. To teach analyzing the project within multi-disciplinary team and ensure that the evaluation of international partnerships.The solution set for this type of project requires multiple viewpoints, experiences and analysis methodologies all within the context of team learning.

Competences

M.Sc. students who successfully pass this course gain knowledge, skills and proficiency in the
following;
1. To learn zero-energy building design criteria as well as understanding of different
geographical and social area’ effects on energy-efficient building design.

2. To learn the principles of interdisciplinary work within the group by using time
efficiently to develop proposals on environmentally friendly energy-efficient buildings
that new technologies are integrated.
3. To learn to design a set of viable system packages for power production &
security,heating, cooling, air-conditioning and lighting system
4. To learn building integrated renewable energy technologies such as photovoltaic, wind
turbines as well as their integration into buildings by developing their own projects with
necessary energy and cost analyzes.
5. To prepare proposals about “construction plans” to increase efficiency by reducing the
time & cost of the building construction period.
6. To develop a new form of financing to make building less risky and more stable
financially.
7. To learn the current legislation about building sector and determine what changes to
municipal code will enhance the development and saving energy.
8. To learn the most effective presentation tecniques to represent their proposals.
