Abstract

The Dutch building environment is responsible for 40% of the total energy consumption, which makes exploration of the possibilities to save energy in the built environment relevant. Because of a lack of calculation methods and techniques at district level it is difficult to determine which design variant has the best results for energy saving and CO2 reduction. In this paper a review of the existing energy calculation methods at building and district level, considering the advantages, disadvantages and applicability is given.
