Fossil fuels are still a critical component of our energy systems. The world is facing a daunting challenge: how to transition to a low-carbon energy system that can meet the needs of a growing global population while also addressing the urgent threat of climate change. While it’s clear that we need to transition away from fossil fuels and work towards a cleaner energy future, the reality is that oil and gas still play a critical role in our energy mix and it will take time to develop and scale up alternative energy sources.
As per the current Green Mark standards, a Super low energy building in Singapore is defined as the best-in-class energy performing Green Mark building that can achieve 60% energy savings with reference to 2005 building codes. To achieve such steep energy savings will require all the building systems to be designed to perform optimally with the least energy
consumption as possible and the energy production through renewables to be maximised both spatially and in terms of system performance. In the tropical climate condition, ACMV systems which consumes 40% of the overall building energy then becomes the most critical building system for the 60% energy savings target to be achieved.
The workshop will discuss selected examples of renewable and new energy solutions to ensure that our energy systems remain secure and reliable. Participants will:
- Achieve the faster progress on energy efficiency that is needed to address today’s global energy crisis and pressing climate imperatives.
- Gain experience on the design philosophy and critical performance criteria to be met by the ACMV systems to achieve the super–low energy status for commercial buildings in Singapore.
- Gain insights on strategies and technologies to achieve the required savings
