Abstract

Amidst growing legislative and social pressures, and rising fuel costs the marine industry is turning its attention to its growing global CO2 emissions. Adjustments to MARPOL Annex IV and the now mandatory compliance of the EEDI have spurred the emergence of new hull optimization and propulsion technologies with LNG fuels and various material flow strategies being common discourse in recent sustainability reports. However, it is clear from energy audits that there is significant scope for the improvement in auxiliaries such as HVAC and lighting to reduce CO2 emissions. The architectural industry; being well accustomed in the reduction of operational loads, has developed integrative design tools, guidelines and legislation to stimulate the use of passive strategies in the reduction of emissions from the EU building stock, which is supported by international policy such as the 2002 Energy performance of buildings directive - which requires all new buildings from 2016 to produce more energy than they consume. This paper identifies the potential of Passive Design as transfer of innovation from the architectural industry, through a parametric analysis methodology which considers the holistic benefits of improved fabric, form, fenestration and lighting. An analysis of the results indicates that designing to the environment of operation, or bioclimatic design, is the key to attaining good energy performance, resulting in significant economic and ecological savings.
