En novembre 2011, un consortium rassemblant l’Université catholique de Louvain (Architecture et Climat), l’Université de Liège (GeMMe et UMC), l’Institut de Conseil et d’Études en Développement Durable (ICEDD) et la jeune entreprise Paille-Tech est formé autour du projet de recherche « aPROpaille » financé par la DGO4 (Direction générale opérationnelle de l’Aménagement du territoire, du Logement, du Patrimoine et de l’Énergie) dans le cadre du programme ERable, organisé par le Service Public de Wallonie (DGO4 et DGO6, Direction Générale Opérationnelle de l’Économie, de l’Emploi et de la Recherche). Ce projet très complet a permis de déterminer les caractéristiques et performances des matériaux « terre » et « paille », de réaliser des simulations de comportement hygrothermique des parois en paille, de les comparer à des monitorings de bâtiments existants en paille, de réaliser une analyse de cycle de vie (ACV) de ce type de paroi… Outre la réalisation d’une plateforme Internet (www.apropaille.be) sur la filière belge, les principaux résultats de cette recherche ont été rassemblés fin 2015 dans trois vadémécums à destination d’un public large et varié. Ces vadémécums, dont le présent document en est la troisième partie, ont pour but d’offrir à tout un chacun une information rigoureuse, claire et compréhensible, des avancées récentes de ce domaine pour favoriser le développement de la filière de la paille utilisée comme matériau isolant dans la construction. Afin de permettre aux acteurs du monde de la construction de s’approprier les connaissances relatives à ce matériau, ce vadémécum s’intéressera aux projets qu’il est possible de construire et montre que les possibilités architecturales que permet l’utilisation de ce type de matériaux sont multiples et sont à la hauteur de la créativité des concepteurs qui les font naître. Le premier chapitre retrace synthétiquement l’historique de ce type de construction. Le deuxième définit une série de modes constructifs fréquemment rencontrés dans la pratique sur base du rôle constructif que joue la paille dans les parois. Une série de fiches est alors présentée pour constituer un catalogue de projets qui sont repris sur la plateforme Internet. Certains projets, les « cas d’étude », sont plus détaillés et leurs fiches reprennent l’ensemble des documents graphiques utiles pour comprendre leur plans, coupes et façades. Un dernier chapitre, intitulé « FAQs », tente de répondre aux questions les plus fréquemment posées sur la construction en paille. [less ▲]

Straw-bale use in buildings may be an interesting way to decrease our energy needs and our impact on the environment. Moreover, it fosters a local economy and the creation of new jobs in the building industry. Combined with earth materials and other well-selected materials and systems, it allows creative designers to integrate highly efficient, low-tech and reusable envelopes in comfortable and healthy places. The present paper summarizes the results of a four year R&D program aiming to improve and promote the use of straw bale in buildings and also to remove uncertainties concerning this use. Three main aspects are pinpointed and discussed: hygrothermal transfer and storage in straw-bale walls, regulation of indoor conditions and environmental impact in the long term. These three topics were submitted to European experts (France, England and Germany) in order to discuss a cross-comparison of results obtained on a larger scale. The paper shows that straw-bale use in buildings is a relevant and innovative solution in facing one of the major challenges of today and tomorrow: "How to build/transform comfortable and affordable buildings with local resources and with a positive impact on the environment?".

Improving energy efficiency in the building and transportation sectors is a viable approach to mitigate the effects of climate change and has become an important policy target. As a result, in addition to scientific research and public policies addressing energy efficiency, raising public awareness of the impact of the behaviour of citizens to energy efficiency is crucial and could quickly lead to significant reductions in the total energy consumption of a territory. In this context, this paper presents a new online interactive tool that enables not only citizens but also local authorities and private developers to (1) assess the sources of energy consumption related to housing and to daily mobility at both the individual and neighbourhood scales, (2) compare these sources and (3) determine relevant and personalised suggestions to reduce energy consumption. Numerous methods and tools, including a typological classification of buildings, thermal dynamic simulations, life-cycle assessments and statistical treatments of national censuses, were used to produce the two large databases used in this interactive tool. This report represents the primary results of a three-year long scientific research project dedicated to the study of energy efficiency in buildings and for daily mobility that is accessible to a large non-specialised audience.

This paper aims to investigate the use of building performance simulation tools as a method of informing the design decision of NZEBs. The aim of this study is to evaluate the effect of a simulation-based decision aid, ZEBO, on informed decision-making using sensitivity analysis. The objective is to assess the effect of ZEBO and other BPS tools on three specific outcomes: (i) knowledge and satisfaction when using simulation for NZEB design; (ii) users’ decision-making attitudes and patterns, and (iii) performance robustness based on an energy analysis. The paper utilizes three design case studies comprising a framework to test the use of BPS tools. Two types of data were collected, mainly preference and performance data. The preference data were used to collect information from participants using self-reported metrics. The performance data were used to collect information on the energy performance of the final design. The energy evaluations were compared with the results of a quantitative assessment of the overall design performance. Finally the results were compared and presented. The paper provides results that shed light on the effectiveness of sensitivity analysis as an approach for informing the design decisions of NZEBs. [less ▲]

The occupants' behaviour has a great influence on the energy demand, management and consumption of a building. This paper investigates the influence of three parameters related to human behaviour through their modes of occupations (based on family size, management of the heating system and management of the heated area) on the housing heating loads of a standard dwelling in Belgium. Seven levels of insulation were tested: no insulation, two intermediate levels corresponding to 3 and 6 cm of insulation, the current standard for new buildings in Belgium, the low energy standard, the very low energy standard and the passive house standard. Multi-zone simulations were performed with a dynamic thermal simulation software. The impact of occupants' lifestyle and the interactions between occupation modes and insulation levels are highlighted. These results prove that the more the building is insulated, the more the lifestyle proportionally influences the heating loads. One important strategy for reducing heating consumption during the whole life cycle of the building is adapting the size of the house and its occupation modes to the evolution of family size. However, insulation is paramount, and increasing the insulation of the house provides generally better results than merely adapting the occupation mode. [less ▲]

There is a need for decision support tools that integrate energy simulation into early design of zero energy buildings in the architectural practice. Despite the proliferation of simulation programs in the last decade, there are no ready-to-use applications that cater specifically for the hot climates and their comfort conditions. Furthermore, the majority of existing tools focus on evaluating the design alternatives after the decision making, and largely overlook the issue of informing the design before the decision making. This paper presents energy-oriented software tool that both accommodates the Egyptian context and provides informative support that aims to facilitate decision making of zero energy buildings. A residential benchmark was established coupling sensitivity analysis modelling and energy simulation software (EnergyPlus) as a means of developing a decision support tool to allow designers to rapidly and flexibly assess the thermal comfort and energy performance of early design alternatives. Validation of the results generated by the tool and ability to support the decision making are presented in the context of a case study and usability testing. [less ▲]

Concerning net zero energy buildings, providing early design support for architects has never been more important. In this context, building performance simulation tools could be a strong supportive technique, when integrated early in the architectural design process. However, despite the available range of tools, most of them do not meet the architects' requirements. To identify this gap, this study compared the ‘architect-friendliness’ of six state-of-the-art simulation tools, to highlight the architects' requirements for these tools and to develop guidelines for researchers and tool developers. The examined tools included ECOTECT, IES/VE – Sketch-Up, Energy10, eQuest, HEED, and Design Builder. The analysis was based on an extensive list of criteria defining the user-friendliness of tools from an architect's point of view. The results show that no single tool is entirely adequate to assist the architect's decision-making process. One of the major limitations is the poor communication and visualization of the output results. [less ▲]

Rapport de recherches final présentant les résultats du projet de recherches SAFE (2009-2012). Le projet de recherches SAFE portait sur l'évaluation énergétique des quartiers périurbains existants dans le but d'en améliorer l'efficience énergétique par le développement de nouveaux modes de conception et de planification des tissus périurbains. L'objectif concret de ce projet de recherche est d'offrir un outil informatique interactif, accessible sur le web (www.safe-energie.be), qui permette d'évaluer l'efficience énergétique des lotissements wallons existants et de comparer différentes stratégies de renouvellement périurbain. Cet outil est destiné à l'ensemble des acteurs du processus de conception, réalisation et rénovation du milieu urbain. L'outil informatique développé estl'aboutissement d'une recherche de pointe basée sur la modélisation énergétique de quartiers périurbains à l'aide de simulations du microclimat urbain (logiciel de CFD, etc), de simulations dynamiques des consommations énergétiques des bâtiments pendant leur utilisation et de simulations énergétiques des fragments urbains sur l'ensemble de leur cycle de vie (intégrant l'évaluation énergétique des bâtiments, du transport et des réseaux d'énergie).

La notion de NZEB, en tant qu’indicateur de performance, doit répondre à un triple objectif de rigueur scientifique, d'ambition proportionnelle à l'enjeu et de pragmatisme. Nous montrons que la définition actuelle des NZEB ne répond pas de façon optimale à ces 3 exigences. Dès lors, nous proposons une autre approche de la performance énergétique des bâtiments, centrée sur la dissociation des indicateurs et leur évaluation relative aux potentiels et contraintes du projet d’architecture. Plus qu’une redéfinition, le résultat de cet article est l’embryon d’un outil de guidance énergétique parallèle aux étapes de développement d'un projet. [less ▲]
