TL;DR: In this article, the authors analyzed available information concerning energy consumption in buildings, and particularly related to HVAC systems, and compared different types of building types and end uses in different countries.
TL;DR: EnergyPlus as discussed by the authors is a building energy simulation tool that includes a number of innovative simulation features such as variable time steps, user-configurable modular systems that are integrated with a heat and mass balance-based zone simulation, and input and output data structures tailored to facilitate third party module and interface development.
TL;DR: The origin and development of the adaptive approach to thermal comfort is explained, and recommendations made as to the best comfort temperature, the range of comfortable environments and the maximum rate of change of indoor temperature.
TL;DR: In this article, the authors investigated the results of recent urban canyon field studies and of scale and mathematical modelling to find a range of canyon geometries that are compatible with the apparently conflicting design objectives of mid-latitude cities.
TL;DR: In this paper, the impacts of surface albedo, evapotranspiration, and anthropogenic heating on the near-surface climate are discussed, and numerical simulations and field measurements indicate that increasing vegetation cover can be effective in reducing the surface and air temperatures near the ground.
