Personal Biography

Dr. Amr Abdallah is Professor in Department of Architecture, Faculty of Engineering, Assiut University, Egypt. Dr. Abdallah was awarded his Ph.D. in Feb. 2014 from Faculty of Engineering, Assiut University, Egypt join with Tohoku University, Japan. Along with his PhD studies, he was a researcher in Dept. of Architecture and Building Science, Laboratory of Building Environmental Engineering, Tohoku University, Japan. In 2012, he was awarded Professional Leader for Sustainable Environment (PLSE) by the Graduate School of Environmental Studies, Tohoku University, Japan. He established international cooperation between Assiut University (Dr. Amr Sayed) and German partners (Prof. Dr. Sahar Sodoudi, FU Berlin) for supporting education for postgraduate studies and establish “laboratory for Environmental and Energy Research”-Dec 2017 in Department of Architecture, Faculty of Engineering, Assiut University. He participates in many faculty development committees, such as the Laboratory and Scientific Equipment Committee. He achieved three research funds from Science and Technology Development Fund, Egypt No. 10255 (March 2015 to May 2016), 30067 (Sept. 2019 to April 2021) and 45850 (accepted Aug. 2021) and his role is Pi for the three projects. The third one is established a Center of Excellence for Urban Governance of Unplanned Areas at Assiut University, Project No. 45850 (Science, Technology and Innovation Funding Authority, Associate Principal Investigator) in order to develop social, economic and digital models for unplanned areas in relation to Egypt’s Vision for sustainable urban development 2030 and a decent life initiative.

Paper Abstract

Mosque presents a unique functional and operational building that differ from other building types. In Egypt, energy consumption of building and its cost especially for mosques is a critical issue for government. Integration of smart occupancy sensors in mosque based on sustainable principles and technologies is considered a new concept for eco friendly building. The study aims to investigate the impact of integration smart sensors inside mosque on total energy consumption with prediction of is efficiency for future periods of 2050 and 2080 and climate change. Using a smart control system as a concept does not require a significant change in building structure to reduce energy. Building simulation model using the Design-Builder software was used to investigate the impact of integration smart sensors of occupancy on mosque energy consumption. Results concluded significant reduction of annual energy consumption is achieved with a percentage ranging from 16.2 % to 21.2% due to using smart control operation plan with an energy index of the mosque that reached 69 kWh/(m2•yr). Also, smart control systems that control energy are applicable in most of the prayer times with a reduction of total energy due to the existence of few numbers of prayers except during Friday prayer and Isha of Ramadan month. This provide information of new smart mosque as a concept for sustainable building.
