Subproject 4

System-based simulation of energy flow in buildings

Project leader: Prof. Dr.-Ing. Philipp Geyer, KU Leuven; Prof. Dr.-Ing. W. Lang, TU Munich

  • early planning phases
    • decisive impact on overall building design
    • high potential of improvement focusing on energy efficiency
    • low information density
    • few computer-aided methods for simulation and analysis of overall energy consumption
    • existing simulation-based methods not applicable for early design phases (high requirements concerning preparation of input data and models)
    • missing methods for reliable estimations concerning energy con‌sumption for construction, maintenance and demolition of buildings (“grey energy”)
