Analysis, Classification and Simulation of Energy Efficiency of Commercial Typologies Downtown Pelotas City

Jaqueline da Silva Peglow, Eduardo Grala da Cunha

Abstract: The concern on the natural resources defense and their sources has increasingly gained space worldwide. Several countries have already adopted energy conservation policies, and this has changed the way of designing. This way, the aim of this work is to identify the pattern of the energy efficiency of commercial typologies of Pelotas-RS, based on the typological analysis and the choice of buildings for observation in order to obtain a characterization and comprehension on the level of the energy efficiency of typologies, comprehending the different possibilities of improvement and taking into account the results of computer simulation. The work is in progress, but it is possible to observe that the buildings of up to two floors, built in lots, until the 1980s, where light colors on the façades prevail, and the percentage of transparent medium envelope characterizes the buildings downtown the city.
