|Experimental Evaluation of the NightCool Nocturnal
Radiation Cooling Concept: Performance Assessment in
Scale Test Buildings
An evaluation has been conducted on a night sky
cooling system that uses a sealed attic covered by a highly
conductive metal roof which is selectively linked by air
flow to provide cooling– largely during nighttime
Executive Summary: Evaluation
of the Impact of Vacant Home Space Conditioning Strategies
on Summer Relative Humidity, Energy, and Peak Load;
In the US, about one in four retiree snowbirds
make Florida their destination to escape the northern cold. This
study was sponsored by FPL as part
of its Conservation R&D Program and carried out by
Comparison of Solar Hot
Water Systems Simulated in EnergyGauge USA and TRNSYS
This study compares the simulation methods of
EnergyGauge USA and TRNSYS 15 relating to solar
hot water systems.
This report provides a single information source
of the models and a
comparison of the results produced by each model.
|Measured Impacts of Proper
Air Conditioning Sizing in Four Florida Case Study
Testing the benefits of properly-sized AC systems
was accomplished via a pre/post monitoring study in existing
|Comparing Apples, Oranges and
Grapefruit: An Analysis of Current Building Energy
Analysis Standards for Building America, Home Energy
Ratings and the 2006 International Energy Conservation
The results of the analysis are informative, showing
not only the differences between the three methods of comparing
the energy-efficiency performance of buildings, but also
the origins of these differences and their impact.
|Energy and Indoor Air Quality
Recommendations for Cold Climate Habitat for Humanity
FSEC researchers share their performance testing
and recommendations given during the 2005 Jimmy Carter
Work Project in Michigan.
|IFC to CONTAM Translator
This paper describes a software
tool that translates three
dimensional building data sets of geometry,
materials and HVAC components into an input
file for the airflow and contaminant
concentration simulation program CONTAM.
