Minneapolis Climate

(southern part of MN)

Warm humid summer

Freezing winter + Snow

Windy fall and spring

High Humidity

http://www.eia.doe.gov/emeu/recs/climate_zone.html


Slide3 l.jpg

High humidity

Medium rainfall (as compared to other parts of the US)


Slide4 l.jpg

Moderate summer + cool transition + very cold winter

Dry bulb temp on x-axis and humidity on y-axis




Slide7 l.jpg

Evaluate which green strategies would work best

  • SUMMER:

  • Near comfort zone only certain days in summer

  • Thermal mass effect + Natural ventilation are effective strategies

  • (Thermal mass helpful for both winter and summer)


Slide8 l.jpg

Evaluate which green strategies would work best ..

  • WINTER:

  • Passive solar works for certain parts of winter (+ thermal mass)

  • Active heating system has to be used

  • Using neighbor building, earth shelter can be other passive

  • strategies

  • Active heating – geothermal can be used to save energy


Slide9 l.jpg

Passive Solar + Thermal mass

  • Optimum position of building mass


Slide10 l.jpg

Zoning requirement: wind turbine for 4-storey house and up.

Wind primarily from southeast and northwest-natural ventilation should be dsgned for these directions

(Synonymous with passive solar orientation)
