Energy and thermal comfort management in a smart building facilitating a microgrid optimization

Efficient energy operation of microgrids that include a localized group of controllable loads with distributed energy resources (DERs) requires the development of energy management systems (EMSs) with the ability of controlling the loads...

The adjacent walls effects in simplified thermal model of buildings

The thermal network method is a reliable approach to study the thermal performance of buildings. It is able to simulate the indoor temperature, heating and cooling loads by means of a set of ordinary differential equations. In this work, a...

What is a Nearly zero energy building? Overview, implementation and comparison of definitions

The reduction of energy consumption in buildings is an important pillar of the European strategy to ensure that future climate and energy targets are reached.

This paper focuses on the definition of Nearly zero energy buildings (NZEBs) that represent one of the greatest opportunities to increase energy savings in Europe. As this term appears to be subject to different interpretations, the paper...
