Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Compared with in Japan, where study on energy-saving technique started in as early as the 1970s, in China the study has just started in recently years, and has still got some incomplete techniques; moreover, the orientation of technique promotion is different as well. Therefore, the research objective is to find out the problems and propose reasonable suggestion on the basis of survey on the current status of environmentally-responsible technique of housing in China. In addition, it's expected to put forward the development core issue of the new environmentally-responsible technique in the future by case study with correlated technique in Japan. Moreover, it is respected that through the research, there would be a further realization on the environmentally- responsible technique of housing in China, increasing the technique communication between the two countries, and give a good lesson for the new technique development in the future.
