Existing buildings account for the majority of energy consumption in the building sector. Surveys of existing buildings have found an estimated 10-20% reduction in energy consumption may be feasible. Research at the Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) is seeking to realize this potential in Europe and specifically in The Netherlands. Past research utilized a whole building level anomaly detection and diagnostics tool to demonstrate the effectiveness and potential of the concept when applied to typical European building systems. An ongoing project seeks to develop a benchmarking tool on the basis of an advanced data gathering and monitoring tool which will relate perceived comfort and measured comfort. Additionally, another project will also incorporate expert knowledge to couple energy analysis with analysis regarding system maintenance and failure risk. Proposed research will seek to develop an advanced retro-commissioning analysis methodology to assist with the initial assessment and ongoing assessment of existing buildings. INTRODUCTION
