The aim of the paper is to reveal the relationship between building performance simulation and building assessment systems as a performance indicator. The paper is part of an ongoing research project on developing a guideline for effective use of building performance simulation in design towards high performance buildings. The description of high performance buildings will be interpreted as sustainable (green) buildings and the assessment criteria of the level of performance will be evaluated by building assessment (rating) systems. The rating systems’ expectations are nearly the same based on global benefits, but vary depends on the stage where they are going to be questioned during design process. Thus, the paper will describe both the design process stages and the stakeholders as decision takers who affect the future performance of the building. By analysing current rating systems as a performance indicator, the available information necessary for assessment during design process will reveal the possibilities (potential?) of using building performance simulation as a support tool for getting high performance buildings.
