Abstract: This study targets the public schools sector in Denmark, considering a case study of an 11,900 m2 School in Odense, and reporting the overall process of energy modeling, performance simulation and assessment of renovation measures. A holistic model was developed and calibrated using measured energy data. Various energy renovation measures and packages were investigated employing a holistic approach and considering the technical, economic and environmental impacts. A deep energy renovation package was recommended lifting the school energy rating to comply with the BR15 Danish building regulations, reducing energy consumption by 54.2% with an annual primary energy consumption of 65.5 kWh/m2 .
