This project aims to develop a new methodology for the automated generation of building energy performance simulation models and demonstrate its application for the evaluation of future urban development plans. The interconnection between the urban building energy modelling workflow and building energy performance simulation software IDA ICE will be set up which would allow conducting building energy performance simulations in batch. Then we will develop a calibration procedure using the available data from different sources (energy declarations, factual energy use meterings), addressing measurement uncertainty and model accuracy. Finally, we also plan to include information on the spatial distribution of the building stock, information about its geometry and to visualize the energy mapping at of the building stock at district and city levels. The research is supported through recently granted project MUBES (46896-1) in scope of the E2B2 programme from Energimyndigheten. The project is done by KTH in collaboration with EQUA - developer of the building simulation tool IDA ICE, energy utilities AB Stockholm Exergi and AB Ellevio, municipalities Stockholm Stad and Uppsala Kommun, and Storstockholms regionala energikontor.
