English abstract:
In the past, the main concern of manufacturing companies was increasing the productivity, reliability, flexibility, and quality of
the industrial process. More recently, the energy efficiency of the production process and buildings has become under scrutiny.
To enhance the energy efficiency of production facilities, detailed information regarding the production processes, heat
emissions from machines, operation level, etc. are necessary. In this context, the present paper describes an ongoing research
effort that aims to develop a systemically integrated model of an energy efficient production facility. As a starting point for the
inquiry, the case of a new building design for an existing industrial production facility was selected. Toward this end, the
existing facility was analyzed. Measurements of the heat emissions from the machines were conducted over a period of multiple
weeks. The collected information was further processed to develop an adequate layout for the new building solution. This
layout provides the basis for the initial building performance simulation model. The generated model is used to address the
impact of different design and operation options on the indoor climate, comfort ramifications (thermal and visual), and energy
performance of the industrial facility.
