Abstract

This paper envisages future scenarios for holistic energy efficient design of buildings, which are integrated to neighbourhood energy systems. The scenarios consider foreseeable new technologies, ICT services and business models. The scenarios are presented as visionary stories of future situations. The stories include the evaluation of potential impacts and the needed progress beyond the state of the art. The user requirements for the visionary stories are identified. As examples, visionary scenarios stories for collaborative planning of neighbourhood energy systems and neighbourhood energy balancing in building design are presented.
