Energy systems for buildings and cities: system thinking and techno-economic analysis

We are facing a paradigm shift in energy systems for buildings and cities characterized by:

  • A growing penetration of intermittent and decentralized renewable energy in buildings and cities,
  • Emergence of millions of households acting as local producers and consumers (prosumers) of the energy,
  • Non-linear dynamic interaction of several systems which are designed, dimensioned, and controlled at the local level, without a central coordination,
  • Fast growing flood of poor quality data from every system in the building, again collected at the local level without any management/coordination,
  •  Increased electrification in the energy sectors, from transport to building heating and cooling,
  • Introduction of many Building Management Systems (BMS) designed and imposed by different stakeholders with conflicting objectives

This lecture shows a few examples of the challenges and opportunities when we are dealing with this paradigm shift and the ever-growing complexity associated to that. IN parallel, I will give a short overview on some of the projects I was leading during the recent years.
