Binalarda Düşük Ve Sıfır Karbon (LZC) Teknolojilerinin Uygulanabilirliği Ve Londra ‘Shoreditch İstasyonu’ Örneği

Serpil ÇERÇİ, Anthony HOETE


In the built environment, ‘Low and Zero Carbon’ (LZC) energy sources can significantly reduce the carbon emissions which cause atmospheric pollution by at least 10-20%. In this study, located in the United Kingdom, LZC technologies were applied to a former train station being redeveloped into a mixed-use scheme in central London. An assessment of the energy savings and predicted CO2 emissions produced by building was then made. The issues for the study are as follows:

  • to define ‘low and zero carbon’ energy sources,
  • to provide information about national and local policies of the United Kingdom’s emission reduction targets,
  • to discuss emission assessments and the ‘Code for Sustainable Homes’ compliance,
  • to introduce the case study variables and the building to be analysed ; to analyse the feasibility of LZC technologies on the proposal for a mixed use high quality residential development incorporating the historical station building transformed into a commercial unit,
  • to create a strategy to save energy for each (residential and commercial) unit with applicable LZC technologies,
  • to calculate the amount of emissions created with the use of space / water heaters, lights, fans, pumps, and so on and then to analyse the contribution of LZC technologies in reducing the amount of these calculated emissions and total energy,
  • to make comparisons on how to comply with current target rates set within British Building Regulations (particularly the Approved Documents Part L – Conservation of Fuel and Power), and the CO2 emission rates obtained in the case study.

After evaluating the level of emissions it was found that the emission rates were higher percentage than the minimum target specified in Building Regulations and the Code for Sustainable Homes.

In summary, the proposed LZC energy strategies for the new development had a positive effect on the results obtained; reducing the amount of CO2 consumed in building, the United Kingdom’s 2010 emission target, a minimum of 20% CO2 , was met. In the conclusion, the benefits for both the United Kingdom and Turkey are briefly mentioned and some suggestions have been made.
