Abstract

The energy efficiency of a building is the result of a series of “design choices”. This research elaborates a methodology for evaluating the relationship between some design choices and the energy demand in residential buildings for different climate zones. In order to determine the energy demand range of two different buildings, some factors have been modified, such as orientation towards 4 cardinal points, U-values of the building envelope and so on. The results of these simulations show which of the analyzed parameters have the biggest influence on the energy demand. The most influential parameters have been organized in matrices based on multi-criteria analysis. Furthermore a mathematical analysis has been carried out to find a mathematical dependence of the considered design choices.
