This paper introduces a framework to assess the potential of buildings to function together using heat load demand patterns and buildings thermal mass. Buildings are characterized as possessing variable and stable heat demand patterns and internal conditions are modified to achieve a peak heat demand reduction. Results indicate 8% reduction in overall peak heat demand when two buildings are operated together. The analysis clearly establishes the significance of an integrated energy system that leads to a reduction in peak loads.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||International Building Simulation Association England||Volume:||4||Start page:||389||End page:||395||Series/Report no.:||Session 4B: Digital Modelling||Copyright (published version):||20198 IBPSA||Keywords:||Heat load demand patterns; Thermal mass; Energy system; Energy efficiency; Building efficiency||Other versions:||http://www.ibpsa.org/bso-2018-proceedings/||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Is part of:||Proceedings of the 4th IBPSA-England Conference on Building Simulation and Optimization||Conference Details:||4th IBPSA-England Conference on Building Simulation and Optimization, Cambridge, U, 11-12 September 2018|
