Abstract

This research aims to study a new optimum renewable energy application method that can cover the minimum energy and operating costs within a range of school budgets. Deriving the optimum application method is expected to maximize the cooling/heating and water heating energy savings of educational facilities. Therefore, this research examined the renewable energy utilization technique diffusion expansion method and the optimum method. The first optimum plan was introduced with a 174kW multi-type geothermal heat pump + a 94m2 solar collectors + a 249.4kW highly efficient electronic cooling/heating device (EHP). On the other hand, the second optimum plan was introduced as a 255.2kW multi-type geothermal heat pump + a highly efficient 168.2kW electronic cooling/heating device (EHP).
