Minimizing the use of fossil fuels and replacing them with non-renewable energies can play an essential role in reducing carbon dioxide emissions. Considering Iran's potential for using solar energy, passive solar systems can be used to reduce carbon dioxide emissions in the building sector. The outer skin of the building determines the energy exchange between the outside and inside environments and governs energy consumption. Therefore, in this research, the potential of using a double-skin facade to reduce energy consumption for office use in a hot and dry climate (Yazd) has been discussed. Also, by changing the geometry and material of the double-skin facade, an optimal model of the double-skin facade for the office spaces of Yazd City will be presented, which will reduce the cooling and heating loads of the building. For this purpose, simulation has been used in the Design Builder software. The presented model reduces the total load of cooling and heating by 68% compared to the case without a double skin-facade. If photovoltaic panels are used on the south front of the double-skin facade (according to the geometry provided) as shading, the total cooling and heating load is reduced by 61%, and 2.77 times the heating and cooling load energy is produced. Photovoltaic panels work best at an angle 10–15 degrees higher than latitude.
