Exergy: Game Changer or Game Maker
TTMD, Ankara Turkey
Many standard practices of today in the High Performance and Sustainably Green Buildings simply rely on the First-Law of Thermodynamics and economic feasibility in their evaluation and ratings. Although these practices seem to be quite `efficient` and green, new metrics, which are based on the Second-Law, namely exergy rationality metrics show that these practices are not feasible and environmentally advantageous, unless they are redesigned accordingly. For example, a simple ORC system using low-enthalpy geothermal source is not feasible, which means that such a system may save money and apparently energy but definitely destroys exergy compared to direct use of the thermal power from the geothermal well. This poster emphasizes the urgency of switching to exergy-based designs and practices.
