Ci2® Consulting

  • Enhanced calibrated model created using real building data

Virtual Benchmark

  • Calibrated model will provide benchmark for ECM evaluation

Building Type

  • Healthcare

This live Ci2 project is developing an extremely sophisticated calibrated model to be used as a virtual benchmark for Energy Conservation Measure (ECM) evaluation. It is being delivered in conjunction with Skanska.

  • Live Case Study: October 2016
  • Enhanced Model created using design geometry, log book data, recorded data and measured consumption
  • Model calibrated by matching simulation data against real data for a benchmark period of April-Dec 2015
  • Virtual benchmark comfortably exceeded thresholds for ASHRAE Guideline 14
  • Electricity calibration taken down to the hourly level, which also met all guidance thresholds
  • Next steps: Calibrated Model will be used as a benchmark to virtually evaluate the effectiveness of x5 proposed Energy Conservation Measures
