Output 01: Literature Survey on the Current Practice of Renewable Energy Applications and Energy Solutions in Green Building in APEC Region
This literature survey aims to provide useful information on the current practice of renewable energy applications and energy supply solutions in green buildings in APEC as well as available technologies/solutions in this field. This literature survey will be divided into two main sessions, including session 1, e.g. development status of renewable energy utilization in different APEC Economies, and session 2, e.g. policies on green buildings in APEC region. For session 1, all of the 21 member economies were considered and development status of renewable energy utilization were also summarized. For session 2, policies related to green buildings were introduced to stakeholders in APEC region to help them having a good understanding.
Output 02: Research Report on Innovative Solar Technologies
This research report aims to provide useful information about the innovative solar technology proposed in the project for experts, producers, consumers and equipment suppliers as well as governments and agencies to better understand the related technologies.
RE is defined as energy that is derived from natural processes and that can be replenished constantly, including energy generated from solar, wind, biomass, geothermal, hydropower and ocean resources, and biofuel and hydrogen derived from renewable resources. Among these renewable energy, the feature and innovative application of solar energy would be systematically introduced and summarized within this report, including solar photovoltaic technology, solar heating & cooling, photovoltaic-thermal (PVT) systems and solar-assisted heat pump (SAHP) system.
Output 03: Technical Solution Package for Renewable Energy Supply for Green Buildings
This research report aims to provide a technical solution package about renewable energy-supply for green buildings, which can help the related stakeholders to deploy the advanced technologies. Technical solution package for renewable energy supply for green buildings funded by EWG 03 2016A is important to promoting green building with cost-effective renewable energy supply solutions in APEC region. This technical solution package will be divided into five main sessions, including session 1, e.g. passive solar design; session 2, e.g. active solar design; session 3, e.g. application of solar technologies in building; session 4, e.g. solar building computer aided design software; and session 5, e.g. case study of solar building.
Output 04: Promotion Plan for GBs (Green Buildings) with Cost-effective Renewable Energy Supply Solutions in APEC Region
The ‘Promotion Plan for GBs with Cost-effective Renewable Energy Supply Solutions in APEC Region’ funded by EWG 03 2016A aims to facilitate and accelerate the spread and adoption of the cost-effective renewable energy-supply solutions for green buildings in APEC region. Promotion plan funded by EWG 03 2016A is important for promoting green building with cost-effective renewable energy supply solutions in APEC region. This promotion plan will be divided into four main sessions, including session 1, e.g. why to develop GBs with Cost-effective Renewable Energy Supply Solutions in APEC region; session 2, e.g. GB’s situation in APEC region; session 3, e.g. critical barriers for GB development in APEC region; and session 4, e.g. how to promote the spread and adoption of GBs with cost-effective renewable energy-supply solutions in APEC region.
