Building Energy Performance Assessment Based on In-situ Measurements

A better prediction, characterization and quality assurance of the actual building energy performance is essential to realise the world wide intended energy reduction in building communities and systems. Quantifying the actual performance of buildings can only be effectively realised by optimized in-situ measurements combined with dynamic data analysis techniques. The IEA EBC Annex 58 project made a lot of progress in this field. The current project Annex 71, aims to make the step towards monitoring in-use buildings to obtain reliable quality checks of daily building construction practice to guarantee that designed performances are obtained on site. More information can be found in the Annex 71 Factsheet.

DYNASTEE is involved again in this project, taking care of dissemination by means of newsletters and the web-site. In addition it organises training through workshops and Summer Schools.
