ZERO-PLUS project - Development of intelligent models for realtime performance assessment of NZE settlements
The monitoring and evaluation of the settlements’ performance is an essential part of the ZERO-PLUS project. Under the framework of the task “Intelligent models for performance assessment and reliability-centered maintenance” intelligent data processing models have been developed. The models are intended to be incorporated in the Web-GIS platform for performance assessment and increased reliability of the ZERO-PLUS case studies’ implementation.

Many stakeholders, from government officials to contractors on building sites, will be asking what are the main changes and how will they affect me? To answer these question, the European Alliance of Companies for Energy Efficiency in Buildings (EuroACE) has written a Guidance Note on the topic. It was launched at the recent C4E Forum event in Serock, Poland, which saw over 200 stakeholders coming together to debate and exchange on all issues surrounding energy efficiency in the Central and Eastern European region.

Numerous studies and surveys indicate that typically-installed HVAC equipment operate inefficiently and waste considerable energy due to varied installation errors (faults) such as improper refrigerant charge, incorrect airflow, oversized equipment, and leaky ducts. This article summarises the results of a large United States (U.S.) experimental/analytical study of the impact that different faults have on the performance of an air-source, single-speed heat pump (ASHP) in a typical U.S. single-family house.
