To promote the green energy technology industrialization in Taiwan, and entrusted by Bureau of Energy (BOE), Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA), the Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) has just finished the construction of a facility of so-called “Subtropical Performance-Testbed for Innovative eNergy Research in Buildings Laboratory”, with acronym the SPIN Lab, located at Shalun Smart Green Energy City in Tainan, Taiwan. It is a full scale testbed for building energy related research. SPIN Lab is a rotatable facility for simulating building at different orientations. It also serves to verify various green building technologies and products, and provides R&D and academic research opportunities, such as construction technology, envelop materials, A/C system, lighting system, IAQ, ventilation, BEMS/HEMS and renewable energy, etc. In the long run, the facility will be helpful for gathering data that are essential to amending building code for better energy efficiency.
