Passive cooling systems were the main design driver in low energy architecture and vernacular architecture especially in hot climate regions. Buildings were designed and built to adapt to local environmental conditions and to use natural elements to provide occupants with the required thermal comfort around the by: 1. Energy use in buildings in the EU represents about 40% of the total annual energy consumption. With greater awareness of the need to reduce energy consumption comes a growth of interest in passive cooling, particularly as an alternative to air-conditioning.

  Passive buildings fall under low energy building where special design criteria is in place to reduce the operational energy consumption in a building. Passive and low energy technologies can provide satisfactory thermal comfort in non-airconditioned buildings. Passive buildings strategies include heat gain prevention, heat modulation and heat Author: L Aye, A Jayalath. the well-designed home. Passive solar design can reduce heating and cooling energy bills, increase spatial vitality, and improve comfort. Inherently flexible passive solar design principles typically accrue energy benefits with low main-tenance risks over the life of the building. DESIGN TECHNIQUES Passive solar design integrates a combination.
