The energy systems in tall buildings are characterized by their high energy consumption and complexity. By reviewing the whole building life cycle – design, control, commissioning, and operation – this presentation presentation first introduceds the challenges that we are facing in each stage of a building life cycle, and then provideds cutting-edge technical solutions. Decentralized HVAC design, Hierarchical optimal control, PID auto-tuning, intelligent auto commissioning, and air flow management are some recommendable technologies that could help make building energy systems be simpler, more efficient, and more sustainable.
