Abstract

Dynamic Building Simulation Modelling has demonstrated that Temperate Maritime Climates experienced in cities such as Dublin, Ireland offer the greatest opportunity for solar assisted space heating in Europe. This paper validates a simulation result by reviewing the actual solar heating results achieved in a house located on the west coast of Ireland which is built to Passivhaus standards. It also demonstrates the maximum Solar Fraction (SF) achievable for the house through the use of a TRNSYS model validated using data gathered on site.
Figures are presented giving the extent to which solar energy assisted in approaching zero carbon heating in the Passivhaus under study. Finally, Life Cycle Cost and Energy Analyses are carried out for the Solar and ISES installation.
