Impact of Climate Change on Operational Energy Consumption of Building Envelop at Bhopal
Abstract: Building envelop is a combination of structure element i. e. wall, roof, window, door etc. The role of building envelop is to provide comfort to its occupants. Building envelop provide comfort to the habitants by creating boundary between external and internal climate. Electromechanical equipment are used to create desired comfort conditions. These electromechanical equipment need energy for their operation. This paper investigates the impact of climate on energy requirement for operation of electromechanical equipment used for creating comfort condition in the building. In this study eQUEST software is used to quantify the operational energy used by the building envelop in climate of year 1990, 2020, 2050 and 2080 placed at Bhopal (M. P. ) India. The simulation report shows different quantum of operational energy requirement in different climatic condition when a building envelop is placed in a particular climatic condition.
