Abstract: Southern European climates are characterised by a combination of heating and cooling needs. Under those conditions the building designer must combine and optimize the natural conditioning techniques for heating and cooling in order to reduce the global energy demand. Once the passive techniques have been implemented, active renewable energy systems must be included. In Southern Europe climates solar cooling is a good tool to achieve a high efficiency level. This kind of combined solutions must be optimized to be able to reduce the greenhouse gases emissions to the atmosphere. To perform this operation, simulation techniques become an imprescindible tool. In this work, the complete process of the design and analysis of four different office buildings located all over Spain is presented.
