Selection of Design Methods in the Modernization Process of Buildings to the nZEB Standard

Hanna Jędrzejuk


Typical methods of improving energy efficiency of buildings to the nZEB standard, such as better exter - nal envelope insulation, using better windows, or introducing a proper ventilation system, may prove inadequate. Often, it is necessary to apply unconventional systems and renewable energy sources. Each case has to be analyzed considering the location, building technology, usage of the building, and even conservation officer’s requirements. To verify the effectiveness of standard activities in various climates, the following locations in Europe were chosen: Athens, Stockholm, and Warsaw. For evaluation, two methods were applied: the monthly balance method and the simplified hourly method 5R1C.
