Benchmark for Low-energy houses
« on: July 08, 2011, 07:01:46 PM »
My name is Gino I. George. I am working on a model for low-energy tropical house in Kerala as my thesis project. I am trying to realize the functionality of passive cooling systems so as to relieve the house from depending on mechanical comfort gadgets (Air-conditioners). I find it difficult to find a similar project that I can use as a benchmark to compare my design analysis. I was wondering if anyone could help me in guiding me through this process.
