Climate data was limited in most parts of Iran, should be expanded. Landscape of the world reserves of fossil fuels over the next few decades, the issue of globalization, has led to increased competition between countries, energy efficiency, as a strategic policy by economists and statesmen of the world. In recent years, discussed the use of new energy for heating and cooling buildings, engineers and architects seem to have shifted. Given that a large part of the country in this area has a warm climate. Implementation of appropriate methods to reduce the cost of cooling buildings is noteworthy. The main pollutant in the environment, especially Iran, fossil energy use in residential areas, offices, commercial heating and cooling is. With the migration from rural to urban areas, the number of consumers of fossil fuels or electricity indirectly, that the industry is based, will be added. Energy issues in Iran has not been considered for years. Overt and hidden government subsidies, everyone is away from the real value of energy. The energy crisis is the most important issues facing humanity in the 21st century. While demand for energy is increasing, fuel sources are being completed. To escape from this crisis the most efficient strategy, optimizing energy consumption, alternative energy instead of fossil fuel is new. In this paper the effect of wall, roof, ventilation, building style, shadows, outlines the design of energy.
