|Keywords:||ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING;ENERGY EFFICIENT HOTEL BUILDING;ZERO ENERGY BUILDING;BUILDING AUTOMATION|
|Abstract:||An energy-efficient building can be described as "A Building that uses minimum of electric energy for its operation and maintenance while maintaining best possible atmosphere inside and maximizing occupant's comfort level". Energy efficient buildings are not only advantageous for reducing energy bills but they are also more effective in environment protection. Now a days concept of ZERO-ENERGY building is quite popular for R&D efforts. A Zero Energy building (ZEB) combines state-of-the-arts, energy-efficient construction, appliances with commercially available renewable energy systems, such as solar water heating and solar electricity and technology application for control of HVAC, Lightning and Appliances . Building automation plays a very important role in the concept of energy efficient building. Automated building is one, which is equipped with the telecommunication infrastructure that enables it to continuously respond and adapt to the changing conditions, while allowing efficient use of resources and increasing comfort and security of its occupants. Building automation provides these benefits through automatic control systems for heating, ventilation and air-conditioning, fire-safety, lighting, communication, entertainment etc. It is a known fact that the hospitality sector consumes tremendous amounts of energy to meet the needs of guests. The benefits of an energy-efficient hotel include, greater guest comfort, extended life of equipment, lower operating costs, cleaner environment over above the significant financial rewards accruing from saving of energy. To increase the energy efficiency of a property, there has to be a proper plan in place. Installation of building automation system is the most important aspect of that plan. This report describes various aspects of achieving energy efficiency in hotel building. This dissertation is divided into 7 chapters. First, analysis of various available methods to achieve energy efficiency in a hotel building is carried out. In the subsequent chapter, a detailed overview of the hotel building automation services and control techniques is made.|
