Abstract

Concerns about the security of energy supply in Europe and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions led to the introduction of the European Energy Performance of Buildings Directive (EBPD). A key requirement within the EPBD is that Member States will need to adopt a methodology for calculating the integrated energy performance of buildings. This thesis is concerned with the use of detailed energy simulation programs to address this requirement of the EPBD and its possible future evolution.
