Why be concerned with energy? For multiple reasons! The fossile fuel reserves are limited: 200 years for coal, 60 years for gas and uranium and 40 years for oil. However, the demand for energy increases in all the countries. From here 2020, the total population of the sphere should reach 8 billion inhabitants, that is to say 2 billion more than in 2000. According to the current trends, the world demand of energy should thus pass from 9,3 billion Mtoe (ton equivalent-oil) to 15,4 billion. Fossile fuel reserves will become exhausted all the more quickly. The European Union imports 62% of its energy resources and Wallonia 98%. We are thus dependant on the request on the worldwide market and this dependence should be accentuated in the next decades. Energy consumption also takes part, for 85%, with our emissions of CO2, emissions which are largely responsible for the climate warming of planet. Lastly, the use of fossile fuels contributes to the pollution of our environment. Vis-a-vis these challenges, we must strongly reduce our consumption of energy, in all the branches of industry. The energy performance of the buildings is thus a factor impossible to circumvent, whose influence is reflected in the long run. Architects, projects promoter, contractors and craftsmen of the building are essential actors in the restoration and the restoration of private and public buildings. It is with them that addresses this booklet, like with the teachers of the schools of architecture and the techniques of the building. To reduce the energy needs for the heating of a building requires specific tools and techniques, in constant evolution. Up to date information is thus essential. This is why my administration entrusted the realization of this work to several specialists, in order to help the originators to integrate these energy requirements in the construction industries and the restorations for which they have the responsibility. The reading of this work will contribute, I hope it, so that more and more of Walloon buildings consume less energy. [less ▲]

The present study explores a Multiple Criteria Decision Aid (MCDA) procedure, an aid to help project authors optimise the building envelope during the sketch design, where a significant number of choices are fixed, having a determining impact on the future building cost and use. The objective of the design method is the respect of building costs – for the building construction and use – and the energy performance improvement. An interactive tool has been developed within multicriteria and multiactors context. In order to improve the architectural response to the client’s and regulation requirements, it gives decision-making aids to: - the project authors: in making up the project architectural forces, in accordance with the actors’ objectives; - the client: in reaching his objectives of costs, building duration, comfort and functionality, while serenely assuming his responsibilities related to his building energy and environment performances. The design tool is organised in two linked modules, any actor may go in any module in any time: - the first one manages parameters describing the project requirements; - the graphic module allows to draw the sketch; it calculates geometric parameter values that it puts back in the first module. Permanently informed on cost and energy performances, the user can any time search for optimal scenario giving best satisfaction or compromise: he has at his disposal at lot of graphs illustrating the performance sensitivity to parameter variation, as well as an optimisation procedure using a genetic algorithm to find the most efficient parameter set. The software is organised to manage new building projects of housings, schools and offices (small to medium size projects). [less ▲]

La politique énergétique des pays industrialisés glisse inéluctablement d’une préoccupation économique vers une préoccupation environnementale. Plus personne ne nie le réchauffement planétaire, dont seuls le déphasage entre émissions et effet climatique, ainsi que l’amplitude posent encore question. Parmi les mesures à mettre en œuvre pour l’enrayer, l’amélioration de l’efficacité énergétique réduit tous les risques de cette problématique. Dans ce contexte, le secteur industriel des pays industrialisés est parvenu à produire plus en consommant moins d’énergie, tandis que les secteurs résidentiel et tertiaire peuvent être considérés, d’un point de vue environnemental, comme les mauvais élèves de la croissance économique. Si le prix de l’énergie est un puissant moteur de régulation de la consommation dans le secteur résidentiel, le contexte économique actuel constitue justement un frein aux investissements économiseurs d’énergie. Or cette vision à court terme masque une impasse prévisible, qui concernera en premier lieu les populations socialement défavorisées ; la régulation économique ne jouant pas son office, cette carence justifie bien le recours à la réglementation. Lorsque l’on examine les réglementations thermiques mises en place dans les pays industrialisés, on doit bien constater qu’elles ne traduisent pas toujours des exigences de qualité énergétique, puisque le classement de différents bâtiments évolue très significativement suivant l’option réglementaire choisie. Ainsi, il est certes nécessaire de réglementer, mais le contenu de la réglementation doit être mûrement réfléchi pour être adapté aux enjeux auxquels le législateur souhaite répondre. Le poids prépondérant de l’enveloppe du bâtiment, élément architectural par excellence, est clairement avéré. Face à ce contexte énergétique, le concepteur est embarrassé : en butte à des matières difficiles à maîtriser, à savoir les aspects énergétiques du projet et les coûts en général mal gérés, l’architecte dispose de moyens scientifiques et économiques limités, qui restreignent sa capacité à y faire face. C’est en réponse à ce besoin qu’un outil de conception énergétique des bâtiments aux tout premiers stades de l’avant projet a été développé. Cet outil conjugue un ensemble de méthodes cohérentes permettant, aux acteurs d’un projet, de converger vers une construction optimisée selon les performances de coût (de construction et d’usage) et d’énergie (respect de la réglementation et consommations). Les aspects originaux de cette méthode sont l’étude de sensibilité paramétrique – permettant de vérifier la faisabilité du projet avant sa représentation sous forme d’esquisse graphique – et l’heuristique d’optimisation combinatoire (mono- et multi-acteur) ayant recours à un algorithme génétique générant des populations de solutions et conduisant à une solution améliorée. Les aspects didactiques de la méthode peuvent, de plus, aider un public peu ou mal sensibilisé aux problématiques énergétiques, dans les phases particulièrement critiques que sont les phases préliminaires de la conception. Ce travail résulte d’un constat d’Électricité de France souvent confrontée à la conception énergétique des bâtiments : les toutes premières étapes d’un projet scellent largement son comportement futur, tandis que la prise en main, par les techniciens, d’un projet architecturalement abouti se révèle peu efficace et laisse trop souvent des regrets quant au choix d’options désormais difficilement amendables. Le développement de l’outil d’aide à la conception énergétique au stade de l’esquisse a ainsi fait l’objet d’un parrainage d’EDF (Direction des Études et Recherches). [less ▲]

The PC software AMCE is proposing building actors (owner, project authors...) a Multiple Criteria Decision Aid (MCDA) procedure to optimise the building envelope about cost and energy performances, during the sketch design, when most important choices are fixed, those having impact on future building's cost and use. Two main modules are linked, where any actor interactively goes in any time: - the first one manages parameters describing the project requirements; - the graphic pen-based module allows to draw the sketch; it calculates geometric parameter values and puts them back in the first module. Permanently informed on foreseeable performances, the user can any time search for optimal scenario giving best satisfaction (monoactor optimisation) or most preferred compromise (multiactors optimisation): at his disposal, he has at lot of graphs illustrating the performance sensitivity to parameter variations, as well as an optimisation procedure using a genetic algorithm to find the most efficient parameter set.

L'étude a pour but d'introduire, au stade de l'esquisse, une méthode rationnelle d'aide à la conception de l'enveloppe d'un bâtiment, avec pour double objectif de respecter les coûts (de construction et d'usage) et d'améliorer la performance énergétique du projet (réglementaire et consommations). Respectant le contexte multicritère et multi-acteurs propre à tout projet d'architecture, un outil interactif a été développé, qui propose, aux acteurs d'un projet, de définir le projet qu'ils souhaitent en répondant à un questionnaire et/ou en dessinant l'esquisse, à main levée. Une procédure d'optimisation utilisant un algorithme génétique permet également de déterminer : pour un seul acteur, le projet optimal, défini par la combinaison de paramètres, qui présente des performances lui offrant la meilleure satisfaction possible ; pour un ensemble d'acteurs, le meilleur compromis entre les scénarios spécifiés, résultant de la combinaison des valeurs de paramètres, qui, à la fois, maximise les performances du projet, et donne, à tous les acteurs, la plus égale et la plus grande satisfaction possible.

Some facts and some figures, first of all. Wallonia must import 98% of its energy resources. The fossile fuel reserves are limited: one speaks 200 years for coal, 60 years for gas and uranium, 40 years for oil. And yet, our energy demand increases irremediably. Moreover, it takes part, for 85%, with our emissions of CO2, emissions which are largely responsible for the climate warming of planet. That is to decrease the dependancy of Wallonia, to save our invaluable natural resources of energy or to limit as much as possible climate warming, we are in the obligation to strongly reduce our consumption of energy. In 10 years, we must raise the challenge to obtain at least 20% of reduction in industry, 10% in the tertiary sector, and 10% in the residential one. Vis-a-vis these challenges, it is necessary for us, as of now, to engage deep changes and to start a true technological revolution in all the branches of industry consuming energy: in the industrial production and transport, in the tertiary sector, but more especially the residential one. for this reason, the design of our buildings has a considerable role to play. To change practices in and for its house will amplify the awakening of the greatest number of citizens. The booklet that you have between the hands addresses particularly to the architects, to the contractors, to the craftsmen of the building, to the teachers of the schools of architecture and the techniques of the building, with all those who are the originators and the realizers of creations and the restorations of private and public buildings. To reduce the consumption of energy for the heating of a building requires tools and techniques, specific and in constant improvement. Also, my administration entrusted the realization of this work to some specialists, to help the originators to integrate these energy requirements in the design of their buildings and the citizens into better using them. I hope that the reading of this work will contribute so that a maximum of Walloon buildings consume less energy. [less ▲]

The present study has for objective to introduce, during the sketch design, a rational method of aiding to design the envelope of a building, targeting the respect of costs (for the construction and in use of the building) and the improvement of the energy performance of the project. In respect of the multicriteria and multiactors context of any building project, an interactive tool is being developed, which is using decision-making aids, in order to improve the architectural response to the client’s and regulations requirements, while aiding; - the client: in the expression of his requirements and in his participation to the multiple partners negotiation; - the project authors: in their elaboration of the parametric and graphic forces of the architectural project, they can develop in accordance with the actors’ objectives. Permanently informed about the project performances, the user may go, as he pleases, in the parametric or in the graphic module, in order to reach the most preferred compromise. [less ▲]

The building is not a unique object any more, but results from the assembly of components, among which the envelope is one of the objects assembled. The components are more and more specialised and acquire an actual independence. On the other hand, the components of the building and of the envelope have a large diversity of life cycles; moreover the life duration of the components shortens, because they rapidly become obsolescent from many points of view: technology, technique, performance, functionality, etc., so that their easy transformability, adaptability (and/or removability) becomes an important quality required to them. The conception of new building envelopes must take these aspects into account, in order to obtain a best practice design. [less ▲]

In 1996, for primarily environmental motivations, the Walloon Government reinforced the requirements as regards thermo isolation of the buildings of the sectors residential and tertiary. For the new housing, the level of total thermo isolation necessary K55 replaced the K70 level, while a K65 level was fixed for the lately built offices and the schools. In alternative, the energy needs Be 450 replaced the needs Be 500 required previously for the new housings. The intervention of the originators is essential because it returns to them to integrate the performances to be reached, as of the initial stages of the process of design. These performances should not however slow down their creativity; on the contrary, it is a question of building buildings combining beauty, comfort, durability and economy. Conscious of the importance of information to be brought to the professionals on the one hand and to the public on the other hand, the Walloon region has set up, for a few years, a multiform device of information and formation, relaying the research undertaken by the Scientific and Technical Center of Construction and the Universities. A first handy guide intended for the architects explored the methodology of design of the thermo isolation of the hollow wall. Its authors, Francy Simon, Professor at the Catholic of Leuwen, and Jean-Marie Hauglustaine, ir University. of research - doctorand at the University of Liege, continue this approach for the thermo isolation of the inclined roof, proposing a coherent step, draft with the project. In this guide, the architect will find a step conceptual integrated allowing him to direct and adapt his choices, by the recourse in particular to tables presenting the current systems of inclined roofs, their performances, as well as a predimensioning thicknesses of insulator and type of complementary vapor barrier possibly necessary. Another guide intended for roofers and for carpenters is currently diffused by Funds of Professional training of Construction, while the private individuals can find booklets and councils which go in the same direction, near the Counters of Energy. These achievements are integrated in the policy which the Rational Use of Energy (RUE) in the buildings has carried out the Walloon region for several years in order to support. Belgium indeed engaged, in Rio and Kyoto, to decrease the consumption of energy and thus the CO2 emissions, in order to reduce the greenhouse effect. Let us guarantee that we will reach that point thanks to the efforts of all. [less ▲]
