Abstract: National construction and energy datasets coupled with batch building performance simulation techniques have made feasible the construction of a stock building simulation model of over 16,000 schools. Although this should provide insights for targeted energy efficiency measures, discrepancies between measured and calculated performance limit predictive powers. A case study of building simulation models of three London schools built using the stock modelling process is presented. Discrepancies in calculated performance have been demonstrated when standardised variables are assumed for schedules, setpoints and equipment over the entire stock. Feedback mechanisms are proposed as a means of recruiting school building users to facilitate future data provision.
