Abstract

The increase of conventional energy has negative impact on the earth and the environment which also affects the next generation. Therefore, renewable energy sources are used as they are sustainable. Besides, renewable energy sources, energy efficiency aspect is used to insure lowest negative impact on the environment which is measured by the green pyramid rating system in Egypt. The purpose of this research is to discuss the applicability of having a zero-energy educational building in Egypt by installing a PV system and decreasing the demand using the energy efficiency criteria of the green pyramid rating system. The case study is the energy and environmental engineering building in the British university in Egypt. This can be achieved by installing a PV system and decreasing the demand using the energy efficiency criteria of the green pyramid rating system.
