    Abstract

    The challenge of finding dedicated and sufficiently informative indicators for energy efficiency of buildings was explored in a literature study and a simulated case. A set of indicators of energy efficiency was developed. The proposed indicators were tested with simulation and the results suggest that the indicators are applicable for practical use. Indicators of energy efficiency are needed urgently, since approximately 40% of energy in the European Union (EU) is consumed in buildings. The success of the efforts to improve the energy efficiency in buildings is to a large part dependent on the availability of reliable metrics to quantify the level of efficiency.
