Earth Air Tunnel

25 Jul, 2013 - 26 Jul, 2013
Venue: 
Development Alternatives Headquarters, New Delhi

As a part of Component 1 of BEEP, the project is exploring alternative cooling technologies and has identified Earth Air Tunnels (EAT) as one of the solutions. The project has monitored two EATs in Northern India for a period of 1 year.

BEEP has engaged Prof. Pierre Hollmuller of University of Geneva, who is an international expert in this domain. Prof. Hollmuller has analysed the performance of EATs in the Northern India and has developed a design and dimensioning tool for EATs, customized for Indian conditions.

The target audience for this training programme will be the practicing architects and HVAC engineers, who work in the domain of sustainable/green buildings. Day one of...

Prof. Pierre Hollmuller is a senior researcher at The Institute for Environmental Sciences (ISE), University of Geneva (UNIGE). Founded in 1559, the University of Geneva is the second largest higher educational institute in Switzerland. The university harnesses many ties with training and research institutes worldwide. The Institute for Environmental Sciences (ISE) is an inter-faculty entity of the University of Geneva. The Institute’s main objectives are to undertake research and teaching activities in the numerous inter-connected domains of the environment, such as climate, water, biodiversity, health, energy, urban ecology and environmental governance. The Institute’s main objectives are to undertake research and teaching activities in the numerous inter-connected domains of the environment, such as climate, water, biodiversity, health, energy, urban ecology and environmental governance. Prof. Hollmuller is an expert on Earth Air Tunnels and has been researching on EATs for European climate for the past 15 years. He has published many scientific papers on this subject. Based on his research he has developed a Microsoft Excel based simplified design and dimensioning tool, and TRNSYS based simulation tool. Using the monitored data from the EAT's in the Northern India, he has adopted the tool for Indian climatic conditions.
