Summary of the Doctoral Thesis
Toms Mols, Riga Technical University, Latvia
The aim of the Thesis is to develop the methodology for evaluation of application of climate-adaptive building solutions in reaching zero energy buildings.
The Doctoral Thesis consists of an introduction, three chapters and conclusions. Chapter 1 reveals the current state of research of indoor microclimate effect on human productivity, energy efficiency measures in buildings and climate-adaptive building envelopes. Chapter 2 describes the methodology of performing assessments of indoor microclimate, multi-criteria analysis of climate-adaptive building envelopes and inverse modeling. Chapter 3 comprises the results of the study describing the discovered measurements, calculated performance outcomes, multi-criteria analysis and the output of developed system dynamics model.
In the Thesis the following hypothesis was proposed: Climate-adaptive building solutions contribute to achieving a zero-energy building level while maintaining good indoor microclimate.
Conclusions after measurements, tests and calculations confirm the proposed hypothesis.
