The simulation consisted of the following phases:
• Geometric modeling of the set of buildings that form "La Fabrica".
• Operational characterization of the different buildings (hours of operation, occupation, temperature setpoints ...).
• Calculation of the simultaneous thermal demand of the buildings.
• Simulation of the simultaneous thermal demand of the buildings with advance of ignited in the buildings with more continuous use.
• Sizing of the boiler.
• Dynamic simulation of energy performance and annual consumption of the heat network.
