Master planning based on NZEB for Positive Energy Districts
SINTEF Community, Norway
Bringing Energy Master Planning on a district level gives the possibility to untangle the academic discussions on the dynamics of energy. Consumers and producers are integral parts of the solution by understanding and influencing energy use/consumption both on individual and societal level. Communication issues between consumers and citizens will be eased and their role empowers them in limiting energy use/consumption and thus in creating the necessary communication and or engagement.
As a sustainable energy transition will see increased electro-mobility, its impact on the energy system needs to be understood and well integrated in planning. The Positive Energy Districts in this work consists of several buildings (new, retro-fitted or a combination of both) that actively manage their energy consumption and the energy flow between them and the wider energy system. Positive Energy Blocks/Districts make optimal use of advanced materials, local RES, local storage, smart energy grids, demand-response, cutting edge energy management (electricity, heating and cooling), user interaction/involvement and ICT. Positive Energy Districts are designed to be integral part of the district/city energy system and have a positive impact on it. Their design is intrinsically scalable and they are well embedded in the spatial, economic, technical, environmental and social context of the project site.
This workshop focuses on discussing what limiting energy consumption entails, how this is related to consumption patterns in general, how much we should or could limit energy consumption. The consumer and the producer need to act and react. In Positive Energy Districts the objectives of climate mitigation and adaptation goals, local energy, air quality and climate targets and a secure and resilient energy system were met. Furthermore, it should lead to significant increase share of i) renewable energies, ii) waste heat recovery and iii) appropriate storage solutions (including batteries) and their integration into the energy system and iv) reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
Integrated requirements for Positive Energy Districts are discussed based on NZEB and their environmental, economic and social performance indicators were identified. Related to environmental impact the ISO14031 Standard presents 3 categories of performance indicators: Management Performance Indicators (MPIs), Waste Indicators (WI) & Environmental Condition Indicators (ECI). How can these be integrated into Building Performance Simulations? Who are the stakeholders? What is the relation to EN ISO 52000? What are Base case, baseline and useful scenario developments? How does the concept of resilience fit into the Energy Master Planning?
