PRIMARY SCHOOL ENERGY OPTIMISATION
Loaction: Zografou, Athens, Greece
Area: 3,500.00 sq.m.
This research project involves the low energy design of the 1st and 7th primary schools in Zografou, based on
a preliminary architectural study prepared by the Organisation of School Buildings (OSK). The project includes
the design and the analytical results of the thermal behaviour, as well as the energy and visual comfort
optimisation of the building complex. The architectural design is always taken into account, so that the integration
of the proposed solutions gives an integral aesthetic quality, which on one hand
relegates to the functional characteristic of the school complex and on the other hand provides optimised
energy consumption and visual comfort.
The results of this research study show that with the proposed optimisation a 30% reduction in energy consumption
can be achieved, while with the use of photovoltaic panels the balance equation of CO2 emissions is positive - that is, the
school complex theoretically does not emmit greenhouse gasses due to its energy generation features.
