Energy Performance Assessment (Wang, Yan, and Xiao 2012)
  • Energy benchmarking: Whole building based on energy performance index (EPI)
  • Energy Rating: Energy quantification method
  • Energy Labeling: Assigning an energy performance class based on scale related labeling index (LI)
  • Energy certification: Procedure to assess energy performance by an authorized institute
  • EPA for existing buildings: Based on measurement ratings (Standardization 2008)
  • EPA for new buildings: Based on calculated ratings (Standardization 2008) because there is no available data
Energy Quantification Methods
  • Calculation-based approach
  • Measurement-based approach
  • Hybrid Approach
