ANALYZING THE PROJECT-SPECIFIC RELEVANCE OF ENERGY EFFICIENCY AS A DESIGN OBJECTIVE
Design to Energy Efficiency (DtEE) is caused by different motivations leading to different meanings of energy efficiency(EE). This paper presents an approach that aims to systematically identify relevant motives and support a differentiated evaluation of the project specific relevance of EE as a design objective. Thereby it gives guidance and recommendation regarding an adequate scope to be considered. This early and differentiated consideration supports a better and project specific understanding of EE and facilitates the following choice of suitable methods supporting an improvement of EE.
