The Directive 2010/31/EU promotes the improvement of the energy performance of buildings within the European Union, by taking into account indoor climate requirements and cost-effectiveness. Thus, the cost optimisation is one of the main objectives of the EU regulatory framework concerning the energy performance of both new buildings and existing buildings subject to refurbishment actions. When assessing the cost-optimal levels of energy performance, the calculation of the energy needs is usually carried out by means of CEN standards or equivalent national calculation methods, based either on steady-state or on dynamic simplified models.

The aim of this work is to study how the calculation method - quasi-steady or dynamic - of the energy needs for heating and cooling, impacts on the final optimal design.

Abstract

The Directive 2010/31/EU promotes the improvement of the energy performance of buildings within the European Union, by taking into account indoor climate requirements and cost-effectiveness. Thus, the cost optimisation is one of the main objectives of the EU regulatory framework concerning the energy performance of both new buildings and existing buildings subject to refurbishment actions. When assessing the cost-optimal levels of energy performance, the calculation of the energy needs is usually carried out by means of CEN standards or equivalent national calculation methods, based either on steady-state or on dynamic simplified models. However, many research studies have pointed out the limitations of the steady-state approach, especially for high performance buildings. The aim of this work is to study how the calculation method - quasi-steady or dynamic - of the energy needs for heating and cooling, impacts on the final optimal design. This is done through the application of a cost-optimal procedure to a single-family house located in Milan. The building energy needs for space heating and cooling are calculated by means of the quasi-steady-state monthly method specified by the Italian standards and the simplified hourly dynamic model of ISO 13790. The performance of the thermal systems is then assessed by means of the national standards (UNI/TS 11300), while the global cost is evaluated by means of EN 15459. Several design options with increasing levels of energy efficiency are applied to the case study. The cost-optimal solutions derived from the application of the two methods are compared, and the reasons for the deviations are discussed.
