Analysis of Renewable Energy Potential in the Residential Sector through High-Resolution Building-Energy Simulation
This study provides technical assessment of the potential of renewable energy systems, specifically roof-mounted solar photovoltaic (PV), micro-wind turbine, renewable energy-based heating, ventilating and air-conditioning (HVAC), and domestic hot water (DHW), in low-rise housing. The project demonstrates that the generation of renewable energy in the residential sector can lower consumer costs and meet part of the overall energy demand. But it concludes that without significant reduction of the overall energy consumption, these technologies alone cannot meet energy needs in the residential sector.
