Abstract

With the serious effects of global warming, international efforts to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are exerted, and in line with this, many efforts are exerted to reduce the GHG emissions of buildings. In South Korea, among the various types of buildings, improvements are urgently required for schools due to the high percentage of deterioration. As the national budget that is allocated for the improvement of school facilities is limited, various improvement plans should be closely analyzed in economic and environmental aspects. In this study, the optimal improvement plan for school facility was deducted through LCC and LCCO2 analyses on application of energy saving measures and new renewable energy system.
