AbstractBased on the data collected from December 2006 to November 2008 and field investigations, the energy consumption and indoor environment quality of an energy efficient office building located in Montreal was analyzed, as a preliminary step of developing a high performance office building database. The results show that both climatic conditions and building occupant activities play significant roles in influencing the characteristics of building energy use. At the same time, energy saving measures along with reasonable operation can not only reduce building energy consumption but also greatly contribute to occupants? satisfaction and productivity. Moreover, effective measures to help occupants know about the advanced features of energy efficient buildings are still necessary in order to further reduce energy use and improve indoor environment quality. In addition, the monthly energy use intensity of this building is compared with an energy efficient office building, which was designed to be submitted for LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold certification, and the results indicate there is still great potential for energy conservation in this building.
