    Abstract

    An energy simulation package, Environmental Systems Performance-research (ESP-r) was used to predict the energy performance of selected building variants, which consist of one typical UK school, two three-storey estate agent and small offices, two single-storey convenience stores and fifty double-storey semi-detached dwellings. Building models were created and construction details, internal casual gains, occupation patterns, heating and cooling system controls were defined for each building variant, in accordance with the original building specifications.
