A critical appraisal of energy-signature models
The use of different energy-signature (ES) models for energy consumption predictions and building parameter estimations is reviewed. For predictions using time-steps of one day or longer, static ES models are found to be useful. Recommendations for the choice of model are given. The use of ES models for the estimation of building parameters, e.g. for an energy audit, should only be done with great caution, as there can be considerable errors. The development of more sophisticated dynamic models may solve some of the problems encountered with the static models discussed here.
