We are pleased to announce the release of a Technical article - "Optimal Parameter Estimation in NZEB Renovation Projects" written by a team of experts from Intrasoft
and the National Technical University of Athens
This article details the development of the Decision Support Tool, MODEST, which allows users to sort through collected simulation and real-time building monitoring data to see the configuration choices that have led to the best Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for the renovation of buildings.
One of the most significant aspects of this tool is its ability to compute all settings that lead to near-zero energy building (NZEB) status. By pressing a button, users can see all minimal combinations of parameter settings that would lead to a desired outcome, such as reaching NZEB status. This feature is a game-changer for users seeking to understand the variables that play the most important roles in driving the energy requirements of a building to NZEB, or even Zero Energy Building (ZEB) status when using a specific technology.
The MODEST platform is a cloud-based tool that has a web-based Graphical User Interface (GUI) that is intuitive and easy to use. Congratulations to the team behind the MODEST tool for this impressive achievement in the field of sustainable building renovation.
