Towards environmental-responsive Electronics Megastores: a case study in Markopoulo, Greece

Share this Post:
The paper reports on a case study of an Electronics Megastore in Markopoulo, Greece. By using an electronics Megastore building as a learning tool in terms of its environmental performance, as well as of its energy consumption, the objective was to explore the abilities of this building type to reduce non-renewable energy consumption and hence to obtain environmental character. The paper puts forward the implementation of a new adaptive comfort range compatible with this building type and appropriate ventilation strategies as well as the use of roof ponds in order to reduce the annual loads of such buildings and hence the energy consumption.
