Abstract
Due to the current concern about energy consumption and CO2 emissions, buildings are increasingly insulated and equipped with controlling machinery. However, the effective energy consumption of high-tech buildings is often higher than expected, and users’ sensation of temperature comfort is not as good as it should be. One reason for the poor performance of these new buildings could be the high sensitivity to changes in weather and user-dependent variables. A sensitivity analysis can be conduc...
