The role and influence of building services engineers are undergoing rapid change and are pivotal to achieving low-carbon buildings. However, textbooks in the field have tended to remain fairly traditional with a detailed focus on the technicalities of heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems, often with little wider context. This book addresses that need by embracing a contemporary understanding of the urgent challenge to address climate change, together with practical approaches to energy efficiency and carbon mitigation for mechanical and electrical systems, in a concise manner.

The essential conceptual design issues for planning the principal building services systems that influence energy efficiency are examined in detail. These are HVAC and electrical systems. In addition, the following issues are addressed:

background issues on climate change, whole-life performance and design collaborationgeneric strategies for energy efficient, low-carbon designhealth and wellbeing and post occupancy evaluationbuilding ventilationair conditioning and HVAC system selectionthermal energy generation and distribution systemslow-energy approaches for thermal controlelectrical systems, data collection, controls and monitoringbuilding thermal load assessmentbuilding electric power load assessmentspace planning and design integration with other disciplines.

In order to deliver buildings that help mitigate climate change impacts, a new perspective is required for building services engineers, from the initial conceptual design and throughout the design collaboration with other disciplines. This book provides a contemporary introduction and guide to this new approach, for students and practitioners alike.
