[en] This paper summarizes a study that was undertaken
to reveal potential challenges and opportunities for
integrating optimisation tools in Net/Nearly Zero
Energy Buildings (NZEB) Design. The paper reviews
current trends in simulation-based Building
Performance Optimisation (BPO) and outlines major
criteria for optimisation tools selection and
evaluation. This is based on analyzing users’ needs
for tools capabilities and requirement specifications.
The review is carried out by means of interviews
with 28 optimisation experts. The findings are based
on an inter-group comparison between experts. The
aim is to assess the gaps and needs for integrating
BPO tools in NZEB Design. The findings indicate
existing limitations including model uncertainty,
computation time, difficulty of implementation and
steep learning curve. Future directions anticipated or
needed for improvement of current tools are
presented.
