—Sustainable environment and energy systems
around architecture world have become major issues of resent
decades. This problem has led the architects to deal with solar
energy more and more, it is clean and endless. When passive
solar energy which is one sort of solar energy would be
incorporated into a building, it brings the power of sun (clean
energy) for those buildings. Besides, as much as the passive
solar energy technologies progress, the quality of energy
increases. Hence, it is an interconnection between human and
Passive solar energy exploited through architectural design
and different parts of buildings such as positioning windows to
enter solar heat and help thermal space. This research tries to
show lack of passive solar energy techniques by researching on
a series of buildings and their potential parts on Salamis Road,
Famagusta, North Cyprus. Finally, this study illustrates in
which ways, these buildings can have thermal comfort space as
a main objective.
—Renewable energy, thermal comfort, passive
solar energy elements, heating and cooling systems.
