This volume, is part of “CIBSE Guide B: Heating, Ventilating, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration”, providing guidance on the practical design of heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. The guide, released by the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE), was published in five separate chapters. The specific chapter deals with the selection, design, commissioning, operation and management of most types of heating systems in buildings.

The challenges of integrating new energy-saving systems in occupied buildings
It can be extremely challenging to integrate technologies using renewables sources, such Parabolic Trough Solar Collectors (PTC), a biomass boiler, a cogeneration unit based on Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC), an absorption chiller and a cooling tower. But this challenge is even greater when these energy reduction systems need to be coupled to an existing and occupied building.
