Abstrakt

The research explores the impact of the shape, construction type, materials and components of buildings and users' scenarios – on buildings' key energy loads (heating, cooling and lighting) in Copenhagen's climate. Applying a genetic algorithm, a search space consisting of over 408,000 simulated buildings was used to extrapolate the optimal solutions. All buildings are compliant with the Danish Code BR10 and some with the most restrictive Passivhaus standard, enabling a discussion about the two systems effectiveness. Finally it is highlighted how much it is possible to reduce building energy loads by proper basic design choices based on energy simulation coupled with genetic optimization.
