Modelling Optimization of Energy Efficiency in Buildings for Urban Sustainability

MOEEBIUS introduces a Holistic Energy Performance Optimization Framework that enhances current modelling approaches and delivers innovative simulation tools which deeply grasp and describe real-life building operation complexities in accurate simulation predictions that significantly reduce the “performance gap” and enhance multi-fold, continuous optimization of building energy performance as a means to further mitigate and reduce the identified “performance gap” in real-time or through retrofitting.


On January 30th and 31st 2018, THN (Technische Hochschule Nürnberg) hosted a technical meeting with the partners leading MOEEBIUS framework components’ development and the pilot coordinators, in Holzkirchen (Germany).

During these two intense days, particularities of interrelation among components as the Building Energy Performance Simulation tool (BEPS), the Dynamic Assessment Engine (Building DAE), Demand Flexibility Engine, Facility Manager tool were analyzed, in order to ensure the full alignment of the approaches, scopes and inputs/outputs required.

MOEEBIUS presents a wide and flexible framework that can be applied in 5 business scenarios and 11 use-cases. Therefore, during this meeting, the implementation of the diverse use-cases at the 3 pilot case and the pre-validation in TECNALIA’s testing lab KUBIK was discussed, agreeing a matrix of scenarios and buildings for the MOEEBIUS framework validation.

This fruitful meeting ended with a guided technical tour to the facilities of Fraunhofer-Institut für Bauphysik IBP.
