Description

The objective of this paper is to present finding of existing building performance assessment for educational buildings and related energy simulation tools with a focus on K-12 buildings. First, the paper examines the current status of energy performance in educational buildings and existing simulation tools used in building energy retrofit. Then, the paper summarizes the obstacles to conducting energy simulation for school buildings, gaps and weaknesses in existing tools will be summarized, and potential opportunities for a comprehensive tool will be outlined. Last, the paper identifies the particular needs of educational buildings, and a set of criteria and requirements for future tools will be proposed based on the particular needs for educational building.
