Energy Consumption Monitoring and Energy Performance Evaluation of an Office Building

N. Harmati, Z. Magyar

Abstract: The motivation of the investigation was to find respectable answers for energy performance improvement of current inefficient office buildings in Serbia. The paper analyzes a B+Gf+9 reference office building in a period for three months in order to assess and evaluate its heating energy performance in a temperate climate. A comparative analysis was performed among the monitored heating consumption and simulated values from the multi-zone model calibrated in EnergyPlus engine. The investigation includes an improved WWR determination from an annual daylight simulation in Radiance, and presents the influence of glazing type on the heating energy performance, respectively. Findings were evaluated in order to offer a reasonable and effective treatment method for rehabilitation.
