New Study Report | France – Compliance of regulatory and design studies on energy performance of new buildings (New field study/2016)

Since 2013, all new buildings in France are subject to an energy performance testing according to the regulatory calculation RT2012. The calculation uses various assumptions, concerning e.g. occupancy, temperature set point value and others, in order to position the building against the regulatory standards.

The objective of this study was to assess the results of the regulatory calculation, by comparing them with a Dynamic Thermal Simulation study. Twenty five (25) buildings were examined in this respect.
