Parametric study for net zero energy building strategies in Brazil considering semi-transparent PV windows

Didoné, Evelise Leite

Abstract:
This work develops strategies to transform typical Brazilian office buildings, built in different climatic zones, into zero energy buildings (ZEB). Special emphasis is placed on photovoltaic application, especially the new technology of semi-transparent PV windows. The work is based on parametric computer simulations using Daysim and EnergyPlus programs. The results reveal that a building envelope design that matches the building’s loads and resources is crucial for becoming a ZEB.
