Dear Mary:

In compliance with the fulfillments of this course’s request, we are pleased to present our report entitled “Autonomous Buildings”, in accordance with your instruction.

The report has been prepared to describe the functioning, sustainability and also the feasibility of different systems within the Autonomous Building. The main purpose of the report is to introduce the energy-saving technologies applied by the Autonomous building, showing a detail scope of approaches, applications, advance, etc. This will help reduce the energy consumption and therefore benefit the sustainable development of environment.

Thank you, Ms. Faure, for the opportunity to prepare this report. Please email us if you have any questions or would like further information. We hope this report will meet your interest and approval.

Yours Sincerely,

EXUCETIVE SUMMARY
This report mainly focuses on the research of the usage and benefits of an autonomous building, which is designed to be operated independently from infrastructural support services such as the electricity power grid, heating and cooling system, food production techniques and municipal water system. Due to the increasing living cost and worsening environment, it is a trend to develop and promote this type of building for energy saving and climate protection. This report also analyzes the functions and application feasibility of the autonomous building in detail. Currently, Most of the research and published articles concerning autonomous building focus on residential homes that are highly correlated to everybody. Thus, the technology of this type of house can be predictably thought as a widely accepted application in the future years.

INTRODUCTION
Autonomous buildings, as their name suggests, can truly achieve the goal of energy saving and energy-independence by using unique and innovative technologies. This particularly innovative project is a pilot implementation of the solutions for integrated energy design of autonomous buildings developed within the framework of a research program of the General Secretariat for…
