Abstract: This contribution demonstrates the application of a building information modeling (BIM) use case including solar thermal collectors, photovoltaics (PV) and passive solar heating. It aims to close the performance gap that results from inconsistencies between the individual planning phases. Furthermore, it is shown how the pairing of the building project with a digital twin allows to set up predictive maintenance services and minimize the downtime of heating systems. Simulation software is used to create coupled models of the building and its facilities. For a case of PV combined with a heat pump and passive solar heating, this paper shows how the digital model is continuously and automatically updated as conditions change. With a focus on the building’s energy demand, control parameters are optimized in alignment with the hardware. Thus, the energy demand is kept within the close range of the original estimation throughout the standard planning phases.
