Connected homes and virtual inhabitants for large-scale energy gains
The arrival of algorithms in eco-design makes it possible to analyse, understand, study and forecast user practices better and better and take them into account to optimise energy efficiency. As part of his PhD research project, Eric Vorger, modelled the energy consumption of buildings resulting from the presence and activities of inhabitants. This occupancy model is coupled with the Pléiades Comfie dynamic thermal simulation tool, developed by MINES ParisTech with the support of the lab recherche environnement.
