Samenvatting

Today many research projects focus on energy reduction in the built environment in order to fulfill the international ambition with regard to CO2 emission reduction. City energy models are used to calculate the need for renewable energy technologies and other measures to reduce energy loss. In these calculations, the energy consumption is highly dependent on the outdoor temperature. Slight changes in outdoor temperature because of climate changes can have a great impact on energy consumption in the city scale. Apart from climate changes, outdoor temperature in a city is also determined by exhaust of energy by the building themselves. This temperature effect is well-known as the urban heat island (UHI) effect. Researches have shown that spatial conditions such as the dimensions and distances of buildings have an effect on the outdoor temperature. Dependent on the time and place on earth the UHI effect can contribute negatively or positively to the heating/cooling load of the surrounding buildings. In this research project we aim to investigate the interaction between (1) Land use, (2) Energy consumption and (3) Temperature. In this research, existing UHI researchers will act as a double check method for this spatial model. The interaction model is developed using spatial parameters as the shared attributes. By researching the interaction between (1)–(2), (1)–(3), (2)–(3) through GIS tools and using observed data, we will analyse what these significant spatial parameters are and how the interaction can be described systematically. With the implemented spatial interaction model, we intend to execute simulations under various scenarios. In these scenarios we use existing forecasting models on land use change, energy consumption change and temperature change to study the effects on the city scale. The outcome of the scenarios of this decision support system (DDS) can be used by city planners and policy makers as input to city transition plans that aim at energy neutrality. In this research we take Rotterdam as a case study to use this spatial model in the practical way. Further study will investigate the potential use of spatial models in different climate zones.
