Abstract

A huge numbers of recently-built residential buildings in Libya provide a poor quality indoor environment which requires a large amount of energy to provide not only comfortable indoor environment but run the air conditioning. Also, the use of energy in buildings is becoming a major contributor to both air pollution and climate change. Improving the energy efficiency, reducing the energy consumption, securing thermal comfort in residential buildings through the application of bioclimatic design principles is a very critical factor. A domestic building in Libya was studied with a view of reducing its energy consumption. The study included detailed monitoring which was followed by a computer simulation with a wider range of intervention strategies. The use of appropriate orientation, materials and building configuration which would offer suitable solutions to the energy and environmental problems in hot arid countries are recommended.
