Event Title

Efficient energy building and Integrating construction pollution control

Session

Energy Efficiency Engineering

Description

The purpose of the Research paper is through the development of new integrated low energy building solutions entirely based on extensive energy savings and renewable energy supply to meet the society’s demands of 2020 and beyond for zero energy buildings. This is an attempt to develop a working definition for Zero Energy Building, which can be used by the participants in the research paper to focus their research and their development of new technologies. Secondly, the working definition might also be used as basis for a discussion of ”Near Zero Energy Building” definition for future energy regulations in Kosovo that fulfills the recast of the EU Directive on Energy Performance of Buildings. A quantitative approach for managing construction pollution control that is based on construction resource leveling is presented. The parameters of construction pollution index, hazard magnitude are treated as a pseudo resource and integrated with a project’s construction schedule. When the level of pollution for site operations exceeds the permissible limit identified by a regulatory body, a genetic algorithm (GA) enhanced leveling technique is used to re‐schedule project activities so that the level of pollution can be re‐distributed and thus reduced. The GA enhanced resource leveling technique is demonstrated using some on‐site construction activities in a project.
