Continuous Commissioning Based on the European Energy Performance of Buildings Directive and Intelligent Monitoring
MetadataShow full item record
The Save Project BuildingEQ “Tools and methods for linking EPBD and continuous commissioning” develops technologies to derive baselines from the information collected during the energy assessment process and rules which are able to automate intelligent monitoring procedures. The implementation of the EPBD in the participating European countries is quite different. Therefore a 4-step procedure was developed in the framework of the Building EQ project. This procedure follows a general top-down approach. The idea is to put effort in form of measurements and analysis only where and when necessary. The transition from one step to the next than has only to be performed if certain criteria are fulfilled. For each step we give rules how to derive baselines taking actual weather and utilization data into account. In addition a minimal data set of measured data was proposed.
