title A Decision-Making Model for Optimizing Solar Retrofit : Solar Vis-A-Vis Conservation
source 1988? pp. [5] : ill. : tables. includes bibliography
summary A decision making model for selecting the optimal or quasi optimal solar retrofit design solutions for low-income residential buildings is presented. The model can serve the architect as a tool and provide guidance on how to improve the building's thermal performance during the different design stages. The model allows him to consider the contribution of energy conservation solutions vis-a-vis solar energy gains solutions based on accumulating knowledge of design precedents. It also allows the use of different strategies for searching the solutions that best fits the different design stages. The sensitivity of the suggested decision making model was checked and satisfactory results obtained
