EnergyTest: A Tool for Assessing Building Energy Sustainability

There is a growing interest in the development of (nearly) zero-energy buildings (ZEBs), i.e., buildings that deliver (nearly) the same amount of energy to the supply grid as it is drawn from it on a yearly basis. This paper investigates the ability of such ZEBs to performing in a truly self-sustainable fashion, i.e., minimising the frequency of energy exchange with the outer grid, through appropriate charging/discharging actions of a storage system. A realistic simulation environment called ENERGYTEST is developed on purpose to simulate the electrical load consumption in an aggregate of houses, in order to perform the sustainability assessment.
