The following two items have been added to the downloads section of the website:

  • New Article - Demand-side characterization of the Smart City for energy modelling - Authors:  William J. N. Turner, Oliver Kinnane, Biswajit Basu

Abstract: This paper presents a new methodology for characterising the energy performance of buildings suitable for city-scale, top-down energy modelling. Building properties that have the greatest impact on simulated energy performance were identified via a review of sensitivity analysis studies. The methodology greatly simplifies the description of a building to decrease labour and simulation processing overheads. The methodology will be used in the EU FP7 INDICATE project which aims to create a master-planning tool that uses dynamic simulation to facilitate the design of sustainable, energy efficient smart cities.

  • INDICATE Newsletter No. 2
