Abstract: This paper presents an exergetic, exergoeconomic and environmental assessment of an existing high-performance building using both static and dynamic analyses. The IEA ECBCS framework is adopted for exergy analysis, whereas the SPECO method is used to implement the exergoeconomic analysis. The environmental impact is considered in a quantitative fashion. It is noted that a dynamic analysis using average hourly temperatures is preferred over a static analysis. However, if a simpler static analysis is to be used, an annual average temperature needs to be identified for specific climate zone and building type. For Istanbul, an average temperature of 14°C is recommended.

Keywords: exergy; exergoeconomic; environmental; static analysis; dynamic analysis; low-energy buildings; high-performance buildings.
