The field of building energy management, which monitors and analyses the energy use of buildings with the aim to control and reduce energy expenditure, is seeing a rapid evolution. Automated meter reading approaches, harvesting data at hourly or even half-hourly intervals, create a large pool of data which needs analysis. Computer analysis by means of(More)
This article describes research conducted to gather empirical evidence on size, character and content of the option space in building design projects. This option space is the key starting point for the work of any climate engineer using building performance simulation who is supporting the design process. The underlying goal is to strengthen the role of(More)
The integration of techniques for uncertainty and sensitivity analysis in building performance simulation (BPS) has a number of potential benefits related to design. It allows assessing the accuracy of performance predictions; it can be used to provide concept specific design guidance, and it enables a robustness assessment of the design proposal to(More)
This paper presents the development of a novel school outline design, which can be applied in the different climate zones of Turkiye, underpinned by building performance simulation. The work builds on an earlier study, presented at the Building Simulation 2007 conference, which analysed the sensitivity of an existing scheme that had indeed been applied in(More)
