COLEB workshop

Computational Optimisation of Low-Energy Buildings

6 & 7 March 2014, ETH Zurich

These proceedings collate the contributions presented at a two-day workshop covering the application of computational optimisation to low-energy buildings, including algorithmic approaches, multiple objectives, building design and operational control.

The workshop was kindly supported by the Chair of Building Physics at ETH Zürich and the Swiss Competence Centre - Energy and Mobility project Integration of Decentralized Energy Adaptive Systems for cities.
