About this book

Energy represents a high percentage of the running cost of a building and has a significant impact on the comfort of the occupants. This book presents detailed information on energy rating of residential buildings, covering the theoretical and experimental rating techniques. It reviews the state of the art and offers guidance on the in-situ identification of relevant energy values of buildings. Established energy normalization techniques are described. Also, new experimental protocols for evaluating energy performance and a new Climate Severity Index (offering significant benefits to the user) are presented. The book includes contributions from experts at the University of Athens, Greece, the Belgian Building Research Institute, Belgium, the University of Seville, Spain, and the Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden.


Introduction to the Energy Rating of Buildings; Energy Rating of Buildings: Theoretical Methodologies; Experimental Methods for the Energy Characterization of Buildings; Energy Normalization Techniques; The Euroclass Method: Description of the Software; Case Studies; Appendix, Bibliography, Index
