Sensitivity study of an opaque ventilated façade in the winter season in different climate zones in Spain
Energy efficient buildings need to take advantage of any renewable energy available. An opaque ventilated façade (OVF) is a kind of façade that absorbs solar energy and transfers it to the ventilation system. This way, the ...
Performance of an unglazed transpire collector in the facade of a building for heating and cooling in combination with a desiccant evaporative cooler
Refurbishment of energy inefficient buildings is an effective way of reducing energy consumption in urban areas. This can be done by taking advantage of the renewable energy sources available, mainly, solar energy. Desiccant ...
Experimental study of overheating of an unglazed transpired collector façade under southern European summer conditions for four modes of operation
The use of unglazed transpired collector (UTC) façades for air preheating in buildings has been proved to be an energy saving solution for refurbishing old buildings. However, not all climates are appropriate for the ...
Experimental analysis and model validation of an opaque ventilated facade
Natural ventilation is a convenient way of reducing energy consumption in buildings. In this study an experimental module of an opaque ventilated façade (OVF) was built and tested for assessing its potential of supplying ...
Experimental study of a modular Unglazed transpired collector Façade for building refurbishment
The use of renewable energy sources available for buildings to reduce energy consumption and emissions has become extremely important over the last few decades. Unglazed transpired collector (UTC) façades absorb solar ...
