Abstract

This paper presents a multicriteria decision-making model for lifespan energy efficiency oriented Intelligent Buildings (IBs) assessment. The model called IBAssessor is developed using the theory of analytic network process (ANP) method, and a set of lifespan performance indicators, which are selected by a new quantitative approach called energy-time use index (ETI). In order to improve the quality of decision-making, the authors of this paper make use of previous research achievements including a lifespan sustainable business model, the Asian IB index, and a number of relevant publications. Practitioners can use the IBAssessor model at different life-cycle stages of intelligent buildings for either engineering or business oriented assessments. Finally, an experimental case study is used to demonstrate how to use IBAssessor model to solve real-world design tasks.
