General Description of the Research Project

Developing low-carbon technologies suitable to hot-humid regions with the aim of implementing them in society
Under the Paris Agreement signed in 2016, developing countries have targets for reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Securing healthy, comfortable housing is a priority in countries with insufficient living standards, but low-carbon targets have to be met as well – achieving both goals is not easy. Targeting high- and medium-high-rise apartment housing, which is becoming more prevalent in Indonesia, this project develops low-carbon construction technologies suitable to hot-humid regions. It aims to have the technologies incorporated into actual buildings and into national standards and other legally-binding construction regulations.

Low-carbon apartment housing that can contribute to achieving Paris targets
By implementing both hardware and software aspects of comprehensive low-carbon technologies, this project will contribute to Indonesia for achieving its greenhouse gas reduction targets under the Paris Agreement through the application of low-carbon technologies in Indonesia’s building sector. Subsequently, it will aim to expand research facilities in Indonesia and disseminate and share information with neighboring countries.
