Abstract

We propose in this study a dynamic simulation of the energy functioning of a built space in order to deduce an evaluation of the associated carbon footprint. A simulation and modeling tool is implemented based on several methodological references. We first use a systemic approach to describe the structural and functional aspects of the systems that make up the built space and the energy flux that we observe. This simulation is done in particular in a hierarchical way to allow a relevant analysis of flux from adequate data processing. The tool is also based on a typological approach around the notions of typical days, typical structural and functional configurations at different scales and angles of observation. The main purpose of this study is to present the correlation or weighting functions that will enable us to move from typical days to months of the year. We present results at different scales of observation in time and space. These results are explained in terms of energy consumption and in terms of carbon footprint based on emission factors of the energy mix of the WAEMU territory, more specifically Burkina Faso.
