International Energy Agency, EBC Annex 58: “Reliable building energy performance characterisation based on full scale dynamic measurements” - Report of Subtask 4b: Towards a characterisation of buildings based on in situ testing and smart meter readings and potential for applications in smart grids

 

This report is one of the deliverables of the International Energy Agency Energy in Buildings and Communities programme (IEA EBC) Annex 58 “Reliable building energy performance characterisation based on full scale dynamic measurements”. The document was released by Subtask 4 of the annex, which produced examples of the application of the developed concepts and showed the applicability and importance of full scale dynamic testing for different issues with respect to energy conservation in buildings and community systems, such as the verification of common building energy simulation (BES)-models, the characterisation of buildings based on in situ testing and smart meter readings and the application of dynamic building characterisation for optimising smart grids.

 

The present report emphasises on the characterisation of buildings based on in situ testing and smart meter readings and also deals with the application of dynamic building characterisation for optimising smart grids.
