Abstract: The energy efficiency of buildings with large glass façades depends strongly on their shading design. Particularly the applied shading control strategy plays an decisive role if surface heating and cooling systems with a large thermal inertia are used for demand side management objectives. Hence, a comprehensive, intelligent control strategy which considers all relevant HVAC subsystems is needed to facilitate the decarbonisation of the European power supply. Such an intelligent control strategy was developed for thermally activated building systems and external shading devices. It was validated for a “living laboratory” building under real operating conditions over two years. Results show that a significant reduction of the energy demand for the static cooling surfaces of about 70% was achieved with a simultaneous reduction ot the complaints about high room air temperatures.
