Before designing efficient systems and incorporating green energy solutions, it is wise to reduce the initial energy needed to effectively operate the building with passive design considerations such as building form, fabric thermal performance, solar/shading performance, and natural ventilation opportunities.
Passive design measures should be incorporated into the design of a building early in the design process to efficiently minimise the energy needed for the proper operation of the building. Building performance modelling is an excellent tool in quantifying the effects and implication of building and service design changes which help guide decision making.
