IEA EBC Annex 58 (2011-2015)

Reliable Building Energy Performance Characterisation Based on Full Scale Dynamic Measurements

The ultimate goal of this Annex 58 is to develop the necessary knowledge, tools and networks to achieve reliable in situ dynamic testing and data analysis methods that can be used to characterise the actual energy performance of building components and whole buildings. To reach this goal, an international collaboration is needed on different issues: development of quality procedures for full scale testing, development of quality procedures for dynamic data analysis, guidelines for building performance characterisation and predictions, gathering well documented high quality dynamic data for validation purposes, applications of dynamic whole building test data. More information can be found in the Annex 58 Factsheet.

At the same time it seems interesting to create an operational Network of Excellence, carried out by DYNASTEE, on full scale testing that can provide advice on the whole process and specific on the dynamic data analysis handling.

Note that the EBC Annex 58 on Reliable Building Energy Performance Characterisation Based on Full Scale Dynamic Measurements, is completed.
