Guidelines on energy system analysis and cost optimality in early design of ZEB

This report presents a set of guidelines to assist building designers in a methodological approach to analysis of energy systems in the early design phase of zero emission buildings. The guidelines are meant to accompany the use of a ZEB supporting tool, guiding through the necessary steps to evaluate performance and adapt dimensioning of different systems to the case at hand.

Zero Village Bergen: Energy system analysis

Based on discussions with the ZEB partners, three possible solutions have been investigated for the energy system of Zero Village Bergen:

  1. District Heating (DH)
  2. Biomass fired Combined Heat and Power (Bio CHP)
  3. Ground Source Heat Pump (GSHP)
