Study on the Economics of Green Buildings in China

Green Building projects may need additional investments, but they will also generate benefits. The difference between cost and benefits are the economic profits. However, for Green Buildings of different uses, and constructed at different times, the respective costs and the benefits would vary significantly. It is important to study the cost and benefits of Green Buildings from an economics perspective and assess their economic efficiency. Through a study on selected sample projects which have attained the different "Star" Grades under the China‟s Evaluation Standard for Green Buildings, this research project looks into the economics of Green Buildings in China, provides an overall framework for the assessment of the cost and benefits associated with these projects, and proposes directions for future policy development.

The Zero Energy Building Using Renewable Energy with Chinese Character

The national demonstration project of renewable energy building in Huazhong University of Science and Technology, approved by the Ministry of Finance and the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development, is achieved to build up a teaching or office building with renewable energy use to adjust temperature and comfortableness all year in Hot-summer & Cold winter area. There is used the Active Dynamic Air Envelope with air inter-layer. Fully use the advantage of underground temperature balance in a year and utilize renewable energy to adjust the flesh air temperature. The Underfloor Air Distribution System is including circle water with underground cool or hot source, underfloor radiator and flesh air vent. The used power of comfort adjusting system is equal or smaller than generated solar energy all year from photovoltaic cell on building roof. This project will store up solar hot in autumn and air cool in spring into underground for anti-reason use.
