Assessing the Impacts of Climate Change on Industrial Building Energy Performance
Keywords:Climate Change; Industrial Buildings; Heating Energy; Energy Performance.
Buildings are responsible for a significant portion of global greenhouse gas emissions and are a critical component in achieving climate neutrality. Researchers have focused on finding energy-efficient building envelope designs to reduce the energy consumption of buildings. However, the majority of studies did not take climate change into consideration. It is clear that more studies should be carried out to investigate the energy performance of buildings under climate change conditions. This paper provides a brief review of relevant studies and highlights the need for further investigation. Specifically, this study analyses the energy performance of a prefabricated industrial building, considering climate change conditions, using Energy Plus simulation software. The results of the study demonstrate that, due to climate change, the heating energy demand of buildings is predicted to significantly decrease. The results of this study are expected to inform strategies for reducing the carbon footprint of industrial buildings in a changing climate.
