Urban layout and energy savings

Keywords: urban planning, energy-efficient architecture, insolation, building layout

In the era of climate changes, one of the most important challenges of architectural designing is a reduction
of energy consumption in buildings for heating and cooling purposes. A significant component of the energy
balance of buildings is passive solar heat gains, the amount of which depends, among other things, on the
mutual location of buildings. The article discusses the preliminary research on the possibilities of achieving
energy savings of buildings at the stage of urban design in Polish legal and climatic conditions. The study
includes the analysis of several variants of the layout of buildings located at the same plot.
