Abstract

This chapter introduces the Three-Star evaluation standards in China, the energy performance of green office buildings, a comparison of occupant satisfaction between green and common office buildings, and three typical green building cases in Shenzhen (a hot summer–warm winter zone), Shanghai (a hot summer–cold winter zone), and Tianjin (a cold zone), respectively.

Keywords
