This study introduces the status of construction of a multi-environment experimental facility (Center for Climatic Environment Real-scale Testing) in response to climate change. Center for Climatic Environment Real-scale Testing consists of large / medium / small climatic chambers, specific performance evaluation laboratory, and 60m open high-rise tower. The climatic chambers can control temperature, humidity, rainfall, snowfall and solar radiation. It is expected to be used for evaluating element parts and systems of future zero energy building. Advanced building materials and structures for energy saving would be also evaluated in the future. Finally, it is also expected to increase the synergy through business link with international standard suggested activities in the building energy field.

A method to quantitatively evaluate the evapotranspiration of green vegetation type green infrastructure (GI) that can reduce the heat island was proposed. The qualitative evaluation method for the evapotranspiration has been predicted by the construction of the water circulation system with the simulation program, but the quantitative evaluation method for it has not been done yet. Depending on environmental factors such as temperature, humidity, solar radiation, rainfall, snowfall and wind speed, the moisture evapotranspiration in the vegetation type GI changes the atmospheric temperature to reduce the heat island. The center for climatic environment real-scale testing located in Chungbuk Innovation City can actualize the climatic environment and quantitatively evaluate the evapotranspiration phenomenon and the evapotranspiration performance of GI according to the domestic climatic conditions of vegetation type GI. The climatic environment chamber constructed by the Korea Conformity Laboratories (KCL) has chambers which can simulate temperature (-40 ~ 80 ℃), humidity (10 ~ 90% RH), solar radiation (800 ~ 1200W /m2) and snowfall (50mm / h) and can be used to implement most of the climatic conditions of domestic and overseas. In the large(20x25x20m), medium(10x10x4.5m) and small(5x5x3.5m) chambers, vegetation type GI can be installed. In order to quantitatively evaluate the evapotranspiration performance of the vegetation type GI, we estimate the evapotranspiration by measuring rainwater infiltration, runoff, and soil moisture content of vegetation type GI according to the climatic conditions. Finally, we propose an evaporative test method for conservatism and absorptivity of GI construction material by using vegetation type GI performance evaluation method using climatic environment chamber.
