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.


The main objective of this task is to define dynamic occupancy and visual/thermal comfort models towards facilitating the definition of accurate comfort profiles for occupants within buildings. These models will be further integrated to the overall MOEEBIUS framework, enabling the holistic optimization of the building performance under constraints imposed by the actual comfort preferences of building occupants. Overall, the main outcome of the task is the definition of occupancy and behavioural models to be further incorporated in the developments of MOEEBIUS profiling framework. In addition, the models will be further available to the BEPS simulation engine of the project towards the delivery of a fine grained building performance management framework.
