Smart Building Simulation – HOMES Pilot Sites

Patrick Beguery, Yacine Lamoudi, Olivier Cottet

Abstract: Within the scope of the HOMES programme, five pilot sites (real buildings) were chosen to study the benefits of active energy efficiency on building energy performance. This article deals with using simulation to assess control functions impact on energy consumption and comfort. Model’s data came from audit report, expert knowledge but also from the use of site monitoring. Main goal for this first step was to compare the actual building performance with a similar building equipped with HOMES control solution.
