Energy wastage due to envelope leakage has been estimated in various countries through numerical simulations: - in Belgium and in Germany, the energy impact has been calculated to be about 10% of the energy performance level for individual houses; - estimates based on simulations on 9 real buildings in France lie between 0.5 and 15 kWh-pe/m2 per year (depending on climate, ventilation system type, and building configuration), with an average of 6.6 kWh-pe/m2, between “default” and excellent airtightness
