Description

This paper presents a workflow to support the decision making for building retrofit and building systems update at urban scale. The workflow includes i) a method to extract information from a geographical information system including information on building characteristics, building systems and building typology, ii) a method to evaluate the current and future energy demand of buildings using a dynamic building simulation tool, and iii) an updated version of the energy hub approach to evaluate best performing options in terms of energy systems update. The developed method is applied to the city of Zurich to evaluate the optimal energy system update for all existing buildings within the city. Modelling results include best performing options in terms of CO2 emissions, renewable energy share, or energy efficiency while minimizing resulting costs for possible system and retrofitting solutions.

A GIS based methodology to support multi-criteria decision making for the retrofitting process of residential buildings
