Abstract
The aim of this article is to analyze the energy efficiency issues of eight office buildings built in Barcelona. Using computer simulations to compare energy demand and level of indoor natural lighting, it is demonstrated that there are considerable differences in demand – in some cases more than double – depending on the type of facade, and these differences are not directly related to the economic cost of the construction solutions used. In all cases, the cooling demand represents more tha...
