This paper shows the process of minimization of delivered energy, primary energy consumption and carbon dioxide emissions for the Turin Energy Centre, a building to be realized in the city of Turin in 2015. The optimization is divided into two steps, firstly operating on the distribution of the functions of spaces, the loads and the HVAC systems in the building, and then, chosen the functional scenario, modifying the generation system. The result is the combination of building’s operative functions and generation systems that minimizes consumptions and emissions, neglecting accumulation and partial load dynamics.
