Monitoring actual energy performance of existing buildings and measuring performance deviations from benchmarked values can help identify the potential areas for building retrofit. However, current building auditing practices include application of energy simulation tools or sensor networks, which can be time-consuming and may only provide system or appliance-level retrofit suggestions. In this paper, a quick and cost-effective approach is presented to recognize potential areas for building… CONTINUE READING
