Architects’ approaches to early stage design energy modelling – an organisational perspective (2018)
Presentation / Conference
Oliveira, S., & Marco, E. (2018, September). Architects’ approaches to early stage design energy modelling – an organisational perspective. Paper presented at Building Simulation and Optimization 2018

Energy modelling practices have been mainly studied from energy modellers' and/or building services engineers' perspectives. In addition, most discussions have focused attention on analysis parameters and tool features, with less attention devoted to...
