Abstract


Recent trends in the development, the zero energy building and near zero energy building has gained a worldwide attention and how it is seen as the future of advance building architecture. Since this kind of buildings are now a days get highly attracted by researchers. This paper presents an innovative concept, design & case study of an “ABSOLUTE ZERO ENERGY CAMPUS”. Which includes energy audit of current traditional campus and energy consumption by the new “ABSOLUTE ZERO ENERGY CAMPUS”. “ABSOLUTE ZERO ENERGY CAMPUS” contains design and selection of new layout using solar architecture, selection of various building components such as walls, roofs, windows, doors & glassing from the perspective of energy efficiency. It also includes on site power generation in terms of photovoltaic integration with the “ABSOLUTE ZERO ENERGY CAMPUS”.

Keywords:- absolute zero energy, advance building architecture, energy audit, solar architecture.
