Abstract

Buildings account up to one-third of all global energy, and it will more than double in th e next 50 years. In order to accurately predict the energy performance of buildings and improve the analysis methodologies, researchers have developed hundreds of algorithms to simplify or semi-automate the analysis process. However, there is significant evidence to suggest that buildings do not perform as well in practice as was anticipated at the design stage. Findings from a number of existing studies revealed that actual energy consumption is often twice as much as predicted. The major contributors to the performance gap are lack of available information that exists at different stages of the formal building life cycle and delivery process. This paper proposes a framework to develop an integrated and seamless Information Delivery Manual (IDM) by extending the existing IDM approaches to identify and document the information required for building performance analysis.
