Agent-based modelling has the potential to provide insight into complex energy transition dynamics. Despite a recent emphasis of research on agent-based modelling and on energy transitions, an overview of how the methodology may be of value to understanding transition processes is still missing from the literature.

Research activities previously performed on shorter simulation timeframe had shown that building-integrated photovoltaic/thermal double-skin façade (BIPV/T-DSF) could maintain a comfort temperature within a building, by adopting a fan-assisted ventilated air cavity in summer, and a non-ventilated air cavity during winter in order to reduce overheating phenomena in the air cavity and consequently in the building.

The use of energy in buildings represents a large share of the total end use of energy. In the United Nations Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) region, buildings are responsible for approximately one third of total energy consumption and account for almost 40 percent of CO2 emissions from combustion. Existing building energy standards in the UNECE region vary from voluntary guidelines to mandatory requirements, which may apply to one or many building types. Their development is typically a complex decision-making process that can involve several stakeholders.

Conducting a plan review to determine whether a building complies with the building code is made much easier with the innovative APR software from SMARTreview. APR works inside Autodesk Revit to collect information relevant to the building code, send it to our APR Cloud Analysis Service to check it against provisions of the International Building Code, and then diosplay the plan review results in the context of the Revit model. Watch this vide to learn about APR and then download it from https://smartreview.biz/
