Feasibility study for nZEB in hot and humid climates

Over the last few years, the importance of net Zero-Energy Building (nZEB) has been increasingly recognised,
but this recognition has not been accompanied by sufficient demonstration projects. In particular, hot and humid
regions require considerable quantities of energy for cooling and dehumidification, and so it is vital to develop
detailed case studies under realistic conditions. The objective of this paper is to investigate the feasibility of
nZEB as an office building in a hot and humid region.
