CLEAR

Comfortable Low Energy ARchitecture

CLEAR (Comfort and Low Energy Architecture) is a website to help you to design good buildings which use little energy but at the same time are comfortable.

The main uses of energy buildings are to heat/cool or to provide light. The site is divided into sections on the thermal environment (thermal comfort) and the visual environment (visual comfort) which address these basic topics.Throughout the relationship between the building and its occupants is seen as dynamic being conducted within the climatic context. CLEAR attempts to provide the tools to enable a building designer to make their building ‘comfortable and Low Energy’.
