Building performance simulation of advanced energy technologies to achieve net zero energy dwellings in UK

Abstract

This paper systematically presents the methodology and initial findings from modelling and simulation of advanced energy conservation, generation and management technologies applied to two case study dwellings to achieve a net zero energy (NZE) target. The specific objectives are to meet the Energy Performance in Buildings Directive as follows: reduction of net regulated energy to or below 0 kWh/m2 per year and generation of at least 50 kWh/m2 per year, on average, in the NZE settlement. The findings reveal that to meet the specific targets set out for the project aligned with the EU Directive: - A majority of technological intervention must come from community renewables, - buildings built to current UK Building Regulations, will need to reduce regulated loads by about half, and - the NZE targets in particular are not particularly stringent regarding energy efficiency but are highly expectant with regard to renewable energy.
