Analysis of regulatory framework and standardization needs - public downloadMarch 11, 2021
The aim of this document is to describe the main regulations on energy efficiency in building valid in the three countries were Demo cases are located – Italy, France and Sweden. Based on this overview analysis the document enumerates the specific building codes for the solutions adopted by the Energy Matching technical partners.
Parametric modelling environment (in Modelica) for buildings cluster simulationFeb. 17, 2021
This document reports a modelling environment development for the analysis of Energy flexible building clusters carried out within the EnergyMatching project. It deals with the definition of a cluster-tailored modelling strategy implemented in Modelica language aimed at integrating both building characteristics, RES availability and energy infrastructure features.
EnergyMatching (EM) Tool for optimization of RES harvesting at building and district scaleFeb. 16, 2021
The EnergyMatching consortium is betting on the improvement of the techno-economic design of BIPV system to ensure that its installation is profitable, and thus to kick-start a virtuous cycle for BIPV. To do this, a software, called EnergyMatching Tool (EM Tool), has been developed to optimize the positions and capacity of the BIPV system and the capacity of the associated electric storage. The tool will be available online (without need for installation) through the platform developed in a related task.
Validation process of a multifunctional and autonomous solar window block for residential buildingsDec. 3, 2020
In the framework of the EU H2020 project EnergyMatching, a catalogue of multifunctional window blocks, called Solar Window Block (SWB) was developed for residential buildings retrofit (Andaloro, et al., 2018). The SWB is a prefabricated system composed by the following components: (i) an insulating frame; (ii) a highly efficient timber-frame window; (iii) photovoltaic modules; (iv) automated shading; (v) and a decentralized ventilation machine. The SWB solutions provide valuable opportunities for enhancing the energy performance of existing buildings and increasing building occupants comfort, in terms of enhanced indoor air quality and daylighting control, with a unique easy-to-install system, without adding electrical loads to the building. In addition, these systems allow for effective integration of BIPV modules to maximize renewable energy sources exploitation through self-consumption, with a low disturbance on building occupants.
