Case study of zero energy house design in UK

Wang, Liping, Gwilliam, Julie Amanda ORCID: and Jones, Phillip John ORCID: 2009. Case study of zero energy house design in UK. Energy and Buildings 41 (11) , pp. 1215-1222. 10.1016/j.enbuild.2009.07.001

Possible solutions for zero energy building design in UK are discussed in this paper. Simulation software (EnergyPlus and TRNSYS 16) are employed in this study, where EnergyPlus simulations are applied to enable facade design studies considering building materials, window sizes and orientations and TRNSYS is used for the investigation of the feasibility of zero energy houses with renewable electricity, solar hot water system and energy efficient heating systems under Cardiff weather conditions. Various design methods are compared and optimal design strategies for typical homes and energy systems are provided.
