Learning outcomes of the course unit

Subject is focused on advanced methods of energy assessment of buildings. The main objective is to introduce students with the assessment of buildings using energy audit and energy assessment. Students will learn how to use energy audits and energy assessment in the Czech legislation. Furthermore, the limited attention paid to this issue in the international environment in the European Union. Within the subject, students will gain theoretical and practical knowledge useful in energy auditing.
