Fact telling, if Egypt consumes 50% of electrical energy in residential, commercial and governmental buildings, there is no way to continue constructing buildings just to accommodate people without consideration to sustainability. Approaches such as coupling outdoor-indoor thermal performance associated with climate change scenarios to predict future urban forms, building designs and sustainability measures in terms of thermal comfort, carbon emissions and energy consumption have to be in the core mind of designing our built environment.
From these standing points, the Egyptian Group for Energy in Buildings and Environmental Design Research, EEER, established by Dr. Mohammad Fahmy in 2012 upon gathering the ideas of Prof. Dr. Abdel-Monteleb Mohamed Aly, Prof. Dr Morad Abdel-Kader, and other colleagues to campaign architects, planners, urban planners and all the qualified specialists in the Built Environment Sustainable Design and Building Simulation issues.
EEER, the official representative of IBPSA-EGYPT (the Egyptian affiliate of the International Building Performance Simulation Association) is a voluntary effort of interested and experienced researchers in the related fields of built environment to increase the awareness of the importance of designing energy efficient built environment and to establish a micro-climatic basis for sustainable design in present as well as in future climates. EEER-IBPSAEgypt will contribute to many activities such as educational events, workshops and conferences.
