In the international trend of energy saving and carbon reduction, our government also shown a determination to actively promote building energy saving and carbon reduction, executed many building energy saving and carbon reduction programs. Most of the building energy saving and carbon reduction programs aim at a single building for energy saving. Energy conservation effect can be calculated and also effect of carbon reduction by the transformation, but lack of assessment tools for the effect of arbon reduction for community as a whole as well as energy-saving technology throughout whole life cycle. It cause that building energy saving effort and carbon reduction effort for whole country difficult to assess and assessment information prior to the implementation of a policy. This project will cooperate with national laboratory of DOE, USA, to introduce EnergyPlus model that had been used by many international case, to create local building and equipment database and to establish demo cases of energy saving and carbon reduction effort assessment by Taiwan local EnergyPlus model. This project also use that model to analysis CO2 mitigations measures effect in low carbon city. All the result will be reference for Taiwan EPA.
The goal of this project are :
1.Develop EnergyPlus model for Taiwan Residencial and commercial buildings and assess energy saving and carbon reduction technologies.
2.Investigate and Set up local database of low carbon building’s EnergPlus model.
3.Link assessment of EnergyPlus model and CO2 mitigations analysis model ( Markal) Establishing cooperation channels with international low-carbon research teams in exchange of low carbon city policies and assessment methodology.
4.Develop greenhouse gas simulation model for residential and commercial.buildings and assess of Residential and service sector carbon reduction strategy.
5.Help grasp the developments of the international organizations, to promote the exchange of experience for carbon reduction strategies and Taiwan's low-carbon communities / cities.
