Résumé
The aim of this study is to provide designers with an opportunity to acquire the skills necessary to integrate energy considerations into the design process. If energy is to become a genuine design issue, design professionals must rethink their approach to energy in the design. Energy-conscious design reflects a realization that building design must use environmental and climatic elements as integral parts of an energy-efficient design solution. Relating buildings to site, climate, local building materials and the sun offers a potential design which incorporates energy into the design process. This is commonly called "passive design." The information provided in this study emphasizes the "passive" systems, which are described as energy-conscious design. It includes integration of energy consideration into in itia l design decisions in the building’s program, location, orientation, form, and materials. Also, it stresses reliance on free energy sources provided by external and internal environments. Finally, it provides information needed to successfully design a passive solar building in Egypt, with the necessary thermal performance calculations. The research is illustrated in a case study set in the Alexandria and Aswan regions.
