Energy simulations of two office buildings (a new building and a renovated building) in North of Italy.
The energy model was implemented taking into account both envelope and systems (heating, cooling, domestic hot water, air treatment, lighting, plug-loads) really installed.
The main topics of the study has been:
- Analysis of the energy performance of the buildings due to pandemic effects for different occupancy scenarios.
- Analysis of the energy weight of the several process and regulations of the air treatment (constant volume, variable volume, IAQ control, etc…).
- Analysis of the potentiality of additional passive strategies in order to reduce the cooling load.
- Study of the flexibility energy index with respect to the availability of the renewable energy produced on site and/or in the grid.
