Abstract: Recently, there is insufficient effort and insufficient body of studies into the issues of low-energy housing for low-income and medium income earners. Even fewer studies have touched on the issue of thermal comfort for low-income housing. Modern housing design does not adequately attempt to utilize daylight fully nor to provide sufficient but energy-efficient electric lighting during night time. This project is carrying out to study on reducing energy consumption cost and greenhouse gas emission for tropical low-income housing in Thailand. Recent progress is on the survey process in low-income housing to collect the data of electric appliances, building configurations and energy uses in household, and establish the baseline for each household type in low-income housing in Thailand.
