TECHNICAL AND ARCHITECTURAL ENERGY STRATEGIES FOR THE SMART LIVING LAB, A SUSTAINABLE BUILDING WITH RELIABLE ENVIRONMENTAL OBJECTIVES
Chapter 1: The smart living lab project; overview on the whole research programme in which this thesis has been developed; definition of the research methodology; definition of goals and implications. Chapter 2: Analysis of the local environmental context; examination of the Swiss energy situation; evaluation of the renewable resources available in the project area. Chapter 3: Framework of the energy consumption in the Swiss building stock; state of the art about efficiency standards and environmental label; state of the art about very performing buildings in Switzerland; analysis of the used case studies. Chapter 4: Sensitivity analysis; why it has been used in this thesis; strengths and weaknesses of this methodology; explanation of how it has been applied to the smart living lab building and with which expected outputs/results. Chapter 5: Design parameters and inputs used to define the energy behavior of the building; motivation of these choices and their range of variation; presentation of the set of simulations obtained (78 cases). Chapter 6: Software used to run the simulations (Lesosai); results in terms of energy demand, final energy, primary energy and CO emissions for each case; discussion of the results and main findings; evaluation of the results given by the sensitivity analysis. Conclusions: summary of the previous results; strength of the outcomes; individuation of criticisms and opportunities for future development. Annexes: input matrix; results simulations; technical report for each simulation.
