The design, construction and operation of energy efficient, high performance buildings in developing economies have been identified by the building industry and policymakers as a key area where technology, standards and other activities are needed.
Issues and challenges to be addressed include: the anticipated fast rate of economic growth in many of these economies as they strive to catch up with Western counterparts and the consequential increase in global energy demand; the large population base in most developing countries; cultural differences relative to those countries where much of the advancement in sustainable building technology has occurred; and, the large fractions of population in rural settings, along with the high rates of population movement from rural to urban areas.
The conference addresses the challenges developing countries face in sustainable construction, such as rapidly growing energy demand, population density and urbanization, and focuses on aspects relating to design, construction and operation of high performance buildings, including the HVAC&R industry’s role in meeting this objective.
In addition, presentations based on papers and invited speakers from around the world will focus on the most critical challenges facing developing economy countries. 20 papers and extended abstracts have been accepted for the conference.
The Conference seeks to bring people from diverse cultures and climates together to share building design approaches that are responsive to local needs, said Ashish Rakheja, conference co-chair. A key motivation behind the conference is to utilize traditional construction practices.
“The papers and presentation will provide examples of how to apply the latest technology to achieve cost effective solutions to support high performance buildings in developing economies,” he said.
Conference attendees will be drawn primarily from the practitioner community – designers, consulting engineers, equipment manufacturers, contractors, government officials, and non-governmental organizations.
