On the development of a façade-integrated solar water storage
The aim of this paper is to assess the energy performances of an innovative façade-integrated decentralized ventilation unit developed for tertiary office buildings. The energy savings achieved in comparison to a traditional ...
Economic and environmental analysis of energy renovation packages for European office buildings
A large share of the buildings in Europe are old and in need of renovation, both in terms of functional repairs and energy efficiency. While many studies have addressed energy renovation of buildings, they rarely combine ...
A new test procedure for the dynamic laboratory characterization of thermal systems and their components
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE SA, 2014)
The need for energy labelling procedures applied to thermal systems requires new methods to assess their seasonal performance. Their typical dynamic operation and the interaction among components and control system restrict ...
A model for the performance assessment of hybrid coolers by means of transient numerical simulation
(ELSEVIER SCI LTD, 2016)
This paper presents the development of a numerical model of a hybrid cooler for transient simulation purposes as a component of a thermal energy system. The model uses a modular definition of the control volume, and is ...
District Heating and Cooling Networks Based on Decentralized Heat Pumps: Energy Efficiency and Reversibility at Affordable Costs
District heating and cooling networks based on decentralized reversible heat pumps offer the possibility of balancing heating and cooling demands and exploiting low-temperature waste heat sources. This enhanced “energy ...
A comprehensive evaluation of a monthly-based energy auditing tool through dynamic simulations, and monitoring in a renovation case study
An energy auditing tool (PHPP) was evaluated against a dynamic simulation tool (TRNSYS) and used for the assessment of energy conservation measures in a demo case study. The comprehensive comparison of useful heating and ...
