In view of the growing desire to use sustainable energy to meet heating and cooling demands and improve indoor air quality, this book offers a valuable reference guide to the available options in HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning) system design. To begin with, the authors define sustainable energy and discuss the trend of “thinking green” in building design. They then discuss sustainable practices and heat pump applications in mapping out HVAC systems. In turn, they examine the use of green operations to promote sustainable practices and, in order to highlight the importance of innovative design, discuss the configuration options and precision control aspects. In closing, the authors illustrate innovative sustainable design on the basis of several energy-efficient cases.
The book’s main goal is to drive the adoption of sustainable energy solutions. Heat pumps, it argues, represent the most efficient system for meeting commercial/recreational/residential heating and cooling demands. The book not only examines industrial practices in heat pump application, but also discusses advanced heat pump technologies and innovative heat pump designs.
Dr. Venus Lun received her PhD from the University of London and is a Co-founder of Sustainable Energy Limited, based in Hong Kong Science and Technology Park. She published more than 60 articles listed in the Web of Science Core Collection. She has been invited by various global bodies (e.g., APEC, ASEAN, and the United Nations) to deliver talks at international events. She is founding director and advisor of a research center at Hong Kong Polytechnic University, and has held visiting positions as an Adjunct Professor, University of Tasmania, Australia; Erasmus Mundus Scholar (funded by the European Commission), City University of London, UK; Visiting Fellow, Curtin University, Australia; and Visiting Scientist, Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.
Dr. Dennis Tung received his Doctor of Business Administration from Hong Kong Polytechnic University and is a Co-founder of Sustainable Energy Limited, a company that manufactures HVAC products for sustainable buildings. With a strong mechanical engineering background, he is a professional engineer and registered energy assessor with substantial experience in building services engineering and heat pump manufacturing. He is a Past President (2016–2017) of ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers) – Hong Kong Chapter and remains actively involved in ASHRAE’s research promotion and related activities.
