Design4energy project develops methodologies and tools that can help designing energy efficient buildings which account for both short term performance as well as future scenarios, considering important factors such as deterioration curves, technology evolution, climate change effect, users, energy neighbourhood configuration, continuous commissioning alternatives while evaluating their impact in the Building Life Energy Performance.
The proposed methodology utilises a sophisticated technology platform, making use of energy attributes of building components, deterioration of building components and systems, neighbourhood energy systems, energy related parameters, energy simulation tools and current usage parameters of the tenants, derived from maintenance and operation data. The new technology platform allows the stakeholders already in an early stage of the design process to explore various design options and to make better informed decisions in optimising the energy performance at building life cycle level, including operation and maintenance.
