Abstract: This paper investigates the performance gap in existing buildings. The performance gaps are usually less often found in constructional factors and more often found in building technology and its automation due to hydraulic and control engineering problems. The introduced methodology, coupling a Monte-Carlo approach with building performance simulations is applied to identify the main factors influencing energy-efficient building and system operation. Moreover, the effects of operating faults are quantified based on sensitivity and uncertainty analyses. The main finding is that operational faults in building technology systems have major implications on building operation and result in performance gaps.
