Abstract: A multi-family house in Ludwigsburg (Germany) is renovated within the European project iNSPiRe. The building was monitored before the renovation with respect to energy consumption, thermal comfort and indoor air quality. Several building simulation models are developed for the whole building and a more detailed one for one flat. The required simulation inputs such as internal gains, user behaviour and heat distribution are derived based either on optimised calibration methods using the available monitoring data or on experience. All models are calibrated and validated against measured data. Results show that the one zone monthly calculation model (PHPP) can be used with good accuracy in case of a calibrated temperature for the 1-zone model.
