The Challenges and Opportunities in Optimising the Holistic Environmental Performance of Buildings

Buildings have an unique environmental operational profile dependent on many factors that include the period of their design and construction, how they may be designed, retrofitted and operated over their lifetime to meet continuously evolving building standards relating to climate, structure, occupant health and engagement, energy systems efficiency and eventual decarbonisation.

Temperature Sensing Optimization for Home Thermostat Retrofit

Having in mind that 53% percent of residential household energy consumption can be attributed to the space heating, as stated by IEA, significant energy savings and load shifting could be achieved through the control of the smart thermostats and thermostatic radiator valves. Therefore, the main topic of this lecture was presenting NUIG’s approach for optimal thermostats control by utilizing white box building model.

Reduced-Order Models as Web Application for Energy Management: Barriers and Challenge

After main ideas and concepts regarding building simulator have been presented, more technical details regarding this topic have been presented within the last lecture. An overview of the available building simulator approaches has been given and it was illustrated how building simulator could be developed within web based service, with the specifics regarding the architecture choices. One of the proposed solutions has been developed using JavaScript (JS), showing the advantages over the conventional simulators.
