A fast response performance simulation screening tool in support of early stage building design

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference proceeding with ISSN or ISBNConference contribution with ISSN or ISBNpeer-review

Abstract

This paper aims to introduce the development of a simplified dynamic building energy simulation screening tool aimed to support early stage building design and feasibility studies while considering the lack of resources typical of those stages of the design process. The structure and main characteristics of the tool are discussed, providing insight on how they can benefit the integrated design process of more sustainable buildings. Results generated by the tool are shown to be comparable with the results of the simplified models, proving to be useful in the integration of energy aspects during the initial stages of building design.
