  2. 2. Definition of Energy<br />4BC - energy derives from Greek ἐνέργεια (energeia) = activity, operation<br />1600s - Gottfried Leibniz (vis viva) product of the mass of an object and its velocity squared <br />1807 - Thomas Young 1st to use the term “Energy”<br />Primary Energy<br />Secondary Energy<br />Energy consumable<br />Energy expanded<br />Net Energy (NEG) = EnergyConsumable − EnergyExpended<br />
  3. 3. Definition<br />Low energy - uses less energy, from any source, than a traditional or average <br /> contemporary house <br />Passive - require little energy for space <br />Zero - zero net energy consumption and zero carbon emissions annually<br /> (requires the use of onsite renewable energy technologies ) <br />Net zero - produces as much energy as it uses over the course of a year <br />Plus Energy – produces more renewable energy than it consumes<br />Energy Conservation – usually comes in the form of codes and standards<br />On grid<br />ZEB in Singapore<br />Off grid<br />

  12. 12. Exergy?<br />ENERGY is motion or ability to produce motion<br />EXERGY is work (= ordered motion) or ability to produce work. When exergy reaches the earth, it is gradually destroyed, but on the way it manages to drive, among other things, the water/wind system, and life on earth <br />

  19. 19. Future of Energy<br />If energy cant be created nor destroyed why is there an energy crisis?<br />Perhaps we need a better quality of exergy. Thus, leading to the creation of new energy technologies and way of life of the future.<br />
