Abstract

Within the frame of the recently launched EU project "Design4Energy" an attempt is being made to develop a design methodology that is able to create Energy-efficient Buildings within the context of their neighbourhoods. The work presented in this paper is the first steps towards this goal. Two approaches are combined and used to capture usage scenarios and visionary scenarios as the building blocks of the meth-odology. Also presented is the conceptual view of the dedicated Technology Platform and an overall Architecture with three layers: data and knowledge layer, service layer and interface/application layer.
