Influences of green star rating tool on HVAC system design

Guan, Lisa and Chen, Guangnan (2009) Influences of green star rating tool on HVAC system design. In: 6th International Symposium on Heating, Ventilating and Air Conditioning (ISHVAC 2009), 6-9 Nov 2009, Nanjing, China.


Abstract

Buildings are one of the most significant infrastructures in modern societies. The construction and operation of modern buildings consume a considerable amount of energy and materials, therefore contribute significantly to the climate change process. In order to reduce the environmental impact of buildings, various green building rating tools have been developed. In this paper, energy uses of the building sector in Australia and over the world are first reviewed. This is then followed by discussions on the development and scopes of various green building rating tools, with a particular focus on the Green Star rating scheme developed in Australia. It is shown that Green Star has significant implications on almost every aspect of the design of HVAC systems, including the selection of air handling and distribution systems, fluid handling systems, refrigeration systems, heat rejection systems and building control systems.
