Abstract

This report documents the findings of a review of the state of the art in the commissioning of low energy buildings. The purpose of this report is threefold: 1) To identify and assess existing methodologies for defining the costs and benefits of commissioning, including the persistence of benefits; 2) To review and assess the state of the art in automated and semi-automated commissioning tools; and 3) To assess current practices for commissioning low energy buildings and identify the needs for methods and tools that go beyond what conventional commissioning approaches can offer. Specific R&D recommendations are included in each chapter of the report and a summary is included in the Conclusions.
