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 UK pilot site comprises dw diverse buildings, namely:

1. Moor House is a large office building on London Wall in the City of London. It is located on the northern edge of the financial district and is one of the largest buildings in the area, standing 84 metres (276 ft) tall and with 29,000 square metres of floor space. Completed in 2004, it was the first building to be designed for the forthcoming Crossrail, with a ventilation shaft to the station underneath the building. When built, it had the deepest foundations in London, which reach down 57 metres (187 ft) and are specifically designed to withstand further tunneling below it in the future. It was designed by Sir Normal Foster.

2. Ernest Dence is a residential estate in the heart of Greenwich Council. The estate was finished in 1937 and comprises of 3 separate buildings: Aylmer House (64 flats), Jennings House (20 Flats) and Gifford House (20 flats). It offers a mix of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom property and is served by a community heating centre placed in the middle of the inner court.
