MetadataShow full item record
One of the research programs of the Energy research Centre of the Netherlands (ECN) concerns the built environment. Several facilities to conduct the research activities are at ECN's disposal. One of these facilities, are five research dwellings located on the site of ECN (Petten, Netherlands). Measured data from these facilities together with weather data and computer models of the buildings are used to evaluate performance of innovative energy concepts and components in these systems. The facilities are used for a broad range of research activities as well as product development. This paper explains more about the test facilities and the methods that are used to evaluate performance.
