Volume 1, Issue 1 , Winter and Spring 2020, , Pages 65-74

  In this research, a plan to implement a zero-energy building (ZEB) for a hot and dry climate region of Iran (Yazd) is introduced and a comparison with a typical house of that climate is performed. Based on climate conditions, several active or passive methods are available in order to create a balance ...  Read More
