Abstract: The main goal of the paper was to numerically analyse the thermal performance of the new developed Energy Activated External Thermal Insulation Composite System (En-ActivETICS) as well as electricity production. The analyses were done using the coupled power flow method (thermal and electrical) for 20 locations in Europe. All locations were analysed considering the local climate in the context of building performance simulation as well as electricity production. The obtained results allowed to determine a future performance of En-ActivETICS, as well as the risk of overheating during exploitation. Based on the simulation results, it is also possible to propose some strategies for system protection, e.g., phase change material application, or heat extraction. Regarding the maximum temperature in case of accelerated thermal ageing, it can be concluded that in analysed locations this effect can be omitted. However, the efficiency of electricity production can be improved by lowering the surface temperature in the range of the year.
