[en] This article presents the method developed to assess existing suburban neighbourhoods in
order to improve their energy efficiency. It combines the use of dynamic simulation tools to
evaluate energy requirements for heating and lighting residential buildings, a statistical
approach to assess the transport system and a simplified calculation to take also into account
public lighting. The method is completed by a life-cycle analysis of buildings. An application
is presented concerning the comparison of three typical suburban structures in the Walloon
region of Belgium. The influence of parameters which are often underestimated, like
distribution of buildings or location, on the global energy performances of suburban fabrics is
tested. The results of this exercise are presented and its limits are discussed.
