Increased environmental awareness and legislation have begun shifting the emphasis from high-energy cooling strategies, in which full air conditioning was considered essential, to low-energy "greener methods" of achieving equally comfortable conditions in building interiors. Cooling is a major use of energy in commercial buildings, making a significant contribution to the emission of greenhouse gases and to global warming. The papers presented in this volume explore the current state-of-the-art developments in the application of latest technologies such as: * Night ventilation for cooling * Slab cooling * Desiccant dehumidification and evaporative cooling * Chiled ceilings with displacement ventilation * Mixed-mode ventilation systems * Case studies and building examples Low Energy Cooling Technologies for Buildings also covers design and control requirements and the tools and techniques needed for the successful integration of these technologies into the building structure.
