GreenBIM Program Case Introduction
Due to the effectiveness of climate change, extremely high temperature comes to be daily and causes a severe impact on living environment and energy consumption. It is important to know how to lower the impact without affecting crowd comfort. Not only in design phase that needs to consider energy consumption, but also in operation phase needs to consider. In fact, energy consumption in operation phase takes most part in building life cycle.
GreenBIM Program - National Museum of Marine Science and Technology(NMMST) is the case that using high/low forecast temperature to adjust its air-conditioner operating timing. Precool the museum not only to decrease the peak load at noon, but also to make the indoor temperature reach the comfort zone earlier.
The results are decreasing not only the penalty charges but also the rate of customer complaining about the indoor temperature.
