Abstract

In this paper the feasibility of several new technologies for energy efficiency in buildings is investigated by means of a novel in-house developed Building Energy Performance Simulation (BEPS) code (DETECt) written in Matlab. In particular, two different Building Integrated Solar Thermal Systems (BISTSs) are analysed: high vacuum solar thermal collectors (for obtaining high temperature working fluids) and PV/T panels, also combined to Phase Change Materials (PCM). In order to assess the energy and economic performance of such BISTSs, a suitable case study was developed. It concerns a Net Zero Energy Buildings (NZEB) to be built up in Naples (South-Italy). Numerical results show that interesting energy and economic savings can be achieved. Results can be useful for stakeholders working on non-residential NZEBs in temperate climates.
