This study aims towards an improved estimation of annual heat demand of the building stock for an entire region. This requires the holistic representation of aspects influencing the heat demand of buildings, namely their geometry, fabric, users and surrounding environment. A large data base for the building stock of the Swiss canton of Geneva was(More)
In this work, a method for taking into account seasonal storage in an energy optimisation problem is developed. A master-slave optimisation procedure is applied, in which the master optimisation is an evolutionary algorithm, while the slave optimisation is a Mixed Integer Linear Programming (MILP) problem. The results of this optimisation can provide(More)
Cities can play a key role in mitigating climate change impacts, as they represent two thirds of the world's energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. This paper presents a model-based approach to support cities in the challenge of including energy issues in early stage urban planning. Recognizing that successful planning must rely on highly(More)
