This paper presents a simulation of the thermal response of the off-grid zero emissions building at the Florida State University Energy and Sustainability Center in efforts to assess the development of effective thermal management strategies for the building. The paper describes the OGZEB and its energy systems and presents a thermal model to compute the temperature and humidity distribution using a volume element methodology. The energy characterization conducted in this paper will be used in future studies to develop control strategies and minimize energy consumption.
