Bottom-up design of a smart neighborhood: an energy simulation approach.
In this workshop the results of the building energy simulations will be shown, as well as the results of the validation track. From a designer’s point of view, it is very valuable to immediately assess the impact of certain renovation design choices on user comfort and energy demand. The total electrification of the energy supply in a neighborhood is also of great concern for the local distribution grid operator. Additionally, this work also has a strong connection with evaluation of the business models. The developed tools will be showcased in this workshop.
