Abstract

The activity of energy auditing in buildings is being developed in many industrialized countries: this is necessary for the legal determination of consumption levels as well a for singling out appropriate energy saving measures. This paper tries to supply a detailed picture of energy audit and the various ways in which it can be implemented. The different results which can be reached and the various people involved (customers, operators) in Energy Auditing are pointed out. The problems + some of them not entirely solved + concerning the various phases of the energy analysis of a building are outlined and discussed (preliminary choices, adequate measuring instruments, interpretation and models, storage, availability of collected data and evaluation of energy saving measures).
