Article
Comparisons of buildings in similar climates built in accordance with different regional construction practices and building rating systems can provide useful insights in sustainable design practices. The objectives of this study were: (1) to perform energy related life cycle assessments of a typical LEED-H (Leadership in Energy and Environmental D...
Article
Full-text available
Urban Building Energy Models are powerful tools for estimating future states of energy consumption and energy generation in buildings. Due to the complexity of these systems, large amounts of data are required, which are often incomplete or unavailable. Through the implementation of building archetypes, models such as the City Energy Analyst minimi...
Article
Full-text available
District-scale building energy models can be a powerful tool for the integration of renewable energy sources and effiiency measures in urban areas. One key limitation of these models, however, has been their rather simplified treatment of building occupants. Since it is their activities which create the needs for energy in an area, an improved anal...
Article
Full-text available
Rapid urbanization and densification processes are changing microclimatic environments in cities around the world. Even though previous studies have demonstrated the impact of urban microclimate on space cooling and heating demand, modeling tools employed to support the design process largely overlook microclimatic conditions in assessing building...
Article
Full-text available
Input uncertainty is one of the major obstacles urban building energy models (UBEM)1must tackle. The aim of this paper is to quantify the effects of two of the main sources of stochastic uncertainty, namely building occupants and urban microclimate, on electrical and thermal supply system sizing at the district scale. In order to analyze the effect...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
District-scale energy demand models can be powerful tools for understanding interactions in complex urban areas and optimising energy systems in new developments. The process of coupling characteristics of urban environments with simulation software to achieve accurate results is nascent. We developed a digital twin through a web map application fo...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Lake water district cooling systems have been shown to reduce greenhouse gas emissions in several cases, including projects in heating-dominated climates. Due to the highly cooling-intensive functions in the Hochschulquartier area in Zurich, Switzerland, a district-scale free cooling network based on lake water has been proposed, but its feasibilit...
Conference Paper
In the implementation of Energy Transition Strategies within urban (re)development projects, processes of spatial negotiation between functional needs (for buildings and transportation infrastructure) and energy solutions able to meet the energy performative targets have been observed. In a large number of urban transformation cases, spatial planni...
Article
Full-text available
District-scale energy demand models are powerful tools to understand complex urban areas, however these models generally use average weather data from rural locations, thus overlooking the effects of the urban context on the local climate. In order to analyze the effects of urban microclimate on space cooling demand, this paper uses microclimate si...
Book
Full-text available
SPACERGY builds upon the need of planning authorities to develop new models to implement energy transition strategies in the urban environment, departing from the exploitation or reciprocity between the space and energy systems. Several policies have been made by each EU nation, but effective and practical tools to guide the urban transformations t...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
In the design practice simulation methods are already widely used to support the understanding of energy performance and to help designers in reducing energy demand during the design process. However, energy simulation tools are largely limited to the individual building level, and urban microclimate conditions and variations in local wind, solar r...
Article
Full-text available
The dissolution of wood in subcritical water in the context of a hydrothermal biomass gasification process is studied in order to provide insight into the effects of the operating parameters during the liquefaction step on the product distribution. Batch experiments were conducted at temperatures of 250-350 degrees C and pressures of 15-30 MPa and...
