A sustainable PV-powered energy retrofit modelling to achieve net ZEB in churches: a simulation study for San Marcello Al Corso

International Journal of Exergy (IJEX), Vol. 36, No. 2/3/4, 2021

Abstract: This interdisciplinary study proposes practical modifications for achieving net-zero energy building (net ZEB) in historical churches while all the values of the church have been recognised and preserved. The church is studied from structural, mechanical and electrical perspectives. A 40.7% rise in energy efficiency and a 12% rise in exergy efficiency are observed after applying modifications. The concept of net ZEB has been accomplished in the church. A 98% balance in annual energy exchange is reached between the on-site and the utility grid power generation by applying the net metering method.
