The viability of electrical energy storage for low-energy households

Highlights The authors simulate the operation of battery storage using data from low-energy households. The authors calculate the impact on the annual amount and cost of imported electricity. The authors calculate the payback period of various battery storage configurations. The authors estimate the ideal amount...

Simulation of rooftop photovoltaic shading using TRNSYS

The shade effect of a rooftop photovoltaic (PV) collector on a roof is usually ignored in building energy simulation in Transient System Simulation (TRNSYS) software. This disregard is due to either the unavailability of a suitable shading component in the simulation software or to an...

Informing the next generation residential energy assessment tools

The Nationwide House Energy Rating Scheme, commonly known as NatHERS, which is applied through software tools such as AccuRate Sustainability, has become the predominant pathway for complying with energy efficiency requirements within the National Construction Code of Australia. Current energy efficiency regulations have remained unchanged...

Investigating equivalence in compliance pathways to Australian housing energy efficiency

Current regulatory pathways to compliance in energy efficiency for Australian housing are via provisions in the National Construction Code (NCC). This paper first identifies performance evaluation criteria set out in the code presented as a comparative analysis across the different methods of achieving compliance. Jurisdictional...
