International Seminar and Workshop on “Building Energy Performance Simulation”

Posted on Fri, Sep 5th 2014 by Site Admin

The Adapt4EE Project organizes an International Seminar and Workshop on “Building Energy Performance Simulation”, hosted by Universidad de Navarra, in Pamplona, Spain, on October 1st 2014.

The International Seminar and Workshop will focus on the demonstration and testing of alternative building energy performance software tools and their comparison with the Adapt4EE project solutions and aims at evaluating the advancements brought by Adapt4EE against the needs of different actors -architects, engineers, facility managers- towards accurately evaluating the energy performance of buildings from their early design phase.

Adapt4EE introduces a novel building energy performance simulation environment that allows the building industry actors to assess the performance of buildings based on more accurate occupancy data resulting from the business process that are executed within an enterprise building.

The Adapt4EE Building Energy Performance Simulation Environment comprises an innovative software tool that takes into account, not only Building Information, but also Business Process, Occupancy and Ambient Information, thus integrating expert knowledge from different domains, towards providing optimized solutions and tackling significant challenges that the ACE community is currently faced with, such as the reduction of the significant gap between predicted and actual energy performance of buildings.


Architects, engineers, facilities managers and other responsible and end-users involved in the use of energy in buildings.

Conditions for Participation

Free for all the participants with previous registration.
