Application of the Exo-Endo Model to the Measurement of Building Energy Performance


This paper outlines performance evaluation within the framework of the exogenous-endogenous classification system, as a means of directing building research activity to the requirements of the different groups concerned with building performance. The authors demonstrate the utility of the exo-endo model to their research into the measurement and evaluation of the national energy performance of commercial and institutional buildings, the performance of large groups of buildings under common ownership and the operation of individual buildings. The examples used draw upon research and conservation studies in offices, hospitals and school buildings. These case studies confirm the utility of the model and suggest areas where some refinements are needed.
