Abstract

In this study, a simulation-based multiobjective optimization was employed to minimize energy loads, reduce CO2 emissions, and improve occupants’ health and comfort, considering cost effectiveness of the design approach on two buildings of different typology—high-rise and low-rise prefabricated buildings—in New Belgrade, Serbia. A series of energy efficiency improvement measures was implemented, focusing optimization ...
