Introduction:

WREC 2011 focused on Future Trends and Applications in Renewable Energy Technologies and Sustainable Development. The topic Low-Energy Architecture covered subjects such as:

  • Construction: green building materials and techniques
  • Energy use: low carbon technologies
  • Human behaviour: expectations and energy use
  • Assessment: monitoring and case studies
  • Low energy buildings
  • Living in low energy buildings
  • Energy efficient heritage buildings
  • Passive solar buildings
