Abstract: Carbon emission reduction targets are becoming a common goal for larger corporations and regulations associated with carbon emissions are in place in several municipalities across the United States. Calibrated energy modelling paired with large scale parametric analyses can provide insight into the most cost-effective approach to reducing carbon emissions from commercial buildings. This paper provides a standardized approach to calibrated energy modelling for this application using a case study of a large commercial office building in New York City.
