A new simulation platform has been created to quantify the energy response of existing residential buildings with different refurbishment strategies. This tool has been developed as a multi-step form wizard to select the simulation options. The energy improvements have been calculated through the coupling between TRNSYS and GenOpt. Output information is: annual thermal loads, monthly loads reductions and cost estimations. Four refurbishment options have been evaluated considering different combined actions. The renovation of the building envelope is the most expensive action with the highest annual savings while the behavior of inhabitants is the cheapest option with the lowest annual savings.

Classification of remotely sensed hyperspectral images is a challenging task due the enormous  amount  of  information  comprised  in  these  images,  that  contain  hundreds of  continuous  spectral  bands.    This  creates  a  need  to  develop  new  techniques  for hyperspectral classification using high performance computing architectures.  Despite the  availability  of  multiple  algorithms  adapted  to  parallel  environments  (such  as multicore  computers  or  accelerators  like  field  programmable  gate  arrays  or  graphics processing  units,  the  application  of  cloud  computing  techniques  has  not  been  as widespread, although there are many potential advantages in exploiting cloud computing architectures  for  distributed  hyperspectral  image  analysis.   In  this  paper,  we  present a  cloud  implementation  (developed  using  Apache  Spark)  of  a  successful  technique for hyperspectral image classification:  the multinomial logistic regression probabilistic classifier.  Our experimental results suggest that cloud computing architectures allow for the efficient classification of large hyperspectral image data sets.
