Currently, the reliable evaluation of self-consumption and the interaction between the buildings and the grid is becoming crucial for the design. Nevertheless, the calculation approaches widely used allow for monthly and yearly evaluations of the energy demand.   Coping this issue, PVopti is an effective support for retrieving hourly energy demand profiles and photovoltaic production, evaluating the interaction with the grid and the self-consumption rate starting from the annual consumptio

Historic buildings are defining elements of city centres but also responsible for a large share of greenhouse gas emissions. In order to reduce their energy demand, it is important to improve envelopes’ thermal transmittance without damaging the historic integrity of their façades by applying interior insulation.   Thus, a detailed planning is needed to guarantee that case-specific variables are well considered. In this study, a holistic performance-based evaluation method is developed.
