Under the umbrella of the International Energy Agency's Energy in Buildings and Community Programme (IEA EBC), a team of 41 institutes from 16 countries started collaborating in 2012 on the development and demonstration of new generation computational tools for building and community energy systems. The IEA EBC Annex 60 is based on the Modelica language and the Functional Mockup Interface (FMI) standards and is planned to end in 2017. This article briefly introduces the Annex 60 structure and objectives and presents some contributing projects carried out by the Computational Building Performance Simulation (CBPS) research group from Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) in the validation and demonstration sub-task related to the design of building and district energy systems.
