The twenty-eightbuildings in the Energy Edge Program provide unique opportunities for studying the energy performance ofnew commercial buildings. In this paper we focus primarily on the results ofthe data analysis, and, to a lesser degree, on the analysis methodology.

Total Energy Use in Buildings: Analysis and Evaluation Methods Annex 53 One of the most significant barriers for achieving a substantial improvement of building energy efficiency is a lack of knowledge about the factors determining energy use.

In fact, there is often a significant discrepancy between designed and real total energy use in buildings. An office building was selected for energy analysis (Janata Bank Building, KUET branch, Khulna, Bangladesh) On site visit was conducted to see the building physically. A meeting was conducted several times with the contractor and the respective engineers who were responsible for the construction of the building.

In Spain, Rey et al. [14] have analyzed the different steps of a new methodology for energy simulation in building called Building Energy Analysis (BEA methodology). The steps mentioned include.

This dissertation introduces the exergy analysis method into ur ban planning field in order to find out the amount of energy that can be conserved in a building block when energy efficient design is applied.

Two hypotheses are develope d here: 1. Exergy analysis is a suitable tool for the built environment, and 2.

Energy efficient design. However, problems may occur when this method is applied in comprehensive buildings. This paper proposed a method to evaluate the overall energy consumption of buildings based on the energy index obtained from different functional sectors.

A linear regression model was developed to predict energy consumption index in multifunctional areas. Recent work on the end-use of load characteristics of high-rise air-conditioned office buildings has revealed that air-conditioning and electric lighting account for 30%–60% and 20%–35% of total building electricity consumption, respectively [].The annual energy consumption in European office buildings varies from to kWh/m 2 of conditioned floor space, depending on location.

Pan et al. summarized the calibrated simulation as one building energy analysis method and applied it to analyze the energy usage of a high-rise commercial building. After steps of repeated calibration, this energy model showed high accuracy in predicting the actual energy usage of the specified building.

In the US, ASHRAE climate zones are commonly used for building energy analysis including building energy efficiency standards.

These climate zones, depicted in Fig.range from 1 to 8 with 15 subzones, and are characterized by their heating and cooling degree-days while subzones indicate varying moisture conditions (ASHRAE, ).Humid subzones are designated by the letter A, dry.

The main objective of this study is to present low energy building and design process using building energy analysis tools, designing a practical office building.

EnergyPlus and ECO2 were selected as primary and second tools. The peak heating and cooling load of the designed office building were simulated by EnergyPlus. And the peak load values were applied to ECO2 as HVAC and plant.

Tips for effective energy analysis of commercial building designs. Many methods and tools are available to perform an energy analysis. Energy modeling is among the most robust. No matter which method is used, it’s important to consider all fuel sources and uses of the building, as well as its intended operating patterns.

The built environment is responsible for significant use of final energy (62%) and is a major source of greenhouse gas emissions (55%). Achieving environmental goals, including climate change mitigation, requires comprehensive methodologies to accurately assess the impacts from this sector.

Increasing availability of unstructured data such as images of various kinds and vantage points (e.g., street view, aerial, and IR) along with other environmental and electronic data (e.g., wi-fi connections and activity) encode information that is relevant to building energy use.

Methods that extract this information reliably while preserving. eQUEST is a publicly-available, easy to use building energy analysis tool, which provides results by combining a building creation wizard, an energy efficiency-measure wizard and a graphical results display module with an enhanced DOE derived building energy simulation program.

It facilitates energy accounting, comparing a facility's energy use to similar facilities to assess opportunities for improvement, and quantifying/verifying energy savings. Commercial building energy performance benchmarking is a foundational element of an organization's energy management strategy because you can't manage what you don't measure.

An Energy Analysis is not required if the project is exempt. The Energy Analysis must represent the entire project, including a building’s envelope, HVAC, service water heating, lighting and electrical power systems as applicable to the scope of the project work.
