Background and activities
" Residential zero-emission building concepts for warm climates"
The primary objective of the PhD project is to develop concepts and strategies which can successfully reduce environmental impact related to the life cycle of residential buildings operating in the climates recognised as warm. Herein , research activities primarily focus on humid subtropical and tropical climate zones according to Koppen-Geiger classification. The project is collaborating with international research centres and communities as Shanghai Jiao Tong University and International Energy Agency (IEA Annex 72)
