Abstract

This paper evaluates several design alternatives, applied to an existing energy-efficient house, that have been developed using both parametric and non-parametric approaches. The performance of the selected alternatives has been evaluated using the multi-attribute life-cycle analysis, with three objective functions: (1) the total energy consumption, including the embodied energy and operating energy; (2) the life-cycle cost, including the initial and energy operating costs and (3) the environmental impacts, calculated in terms of equivalent CO2 emissions. Results show that the energy performance of this existing energy-efficient house can still be improved.
