This report looks to shed light on the problems that are preventing improvement in our energy modeling capabilities, and the actions that should be taken to overcome them. Energy models are used to evaluate the energy performance of a building, but there is an issue known as the “performance gap,” which means that the energy usage that the model predicts can vary significantly from the final performance of the building. The steps and methods needed to reduce these performance gaps are covered in this report.
