Abstract [en]

The study of the building energy demand has become a topic of great importance, because of the significant increase of interest in energy sustainability. University campuses represent specific groups of diverse buildings, with significant energy consumption. They consist of many different buildings, representing small-scale town for itself. Therefore, they provide an excellent testbed to characterize and understand energy consumption of group of „mixed use“ buildings. Suitable building database for University campus NTNU Gloshaugen is created, and available data of heating and electricity energy use are collected and organized. Having correct and reliable data is essential, so data error analysis using statistical methods is performed. Heating energy use was modeled using Matlab statistical toolbox functions. Creating a model of energy use helps in future building planning; it can provide useful information about most probable energy consumption for similar buildings, or predict energy use in different conditions. This assignment is realised as a part of the collaborative project “Sustainable Energy and Environment in Western Balkans” that aims to develop and establish five new internationally recognized MSc study programs for the field of “Sustainable Energy and Environment”, one at each of the five collaborating universities in three different WB countries. The project is funded through the Norwegian Programme in Higher Education, Research and Development in the Western Balkans, Programme 3: Energy Sector (HERD Energy) for the period 2011-2013.
