The study is underpinned by the EN ISO 52016-3:2023 standard, which delineates the calculation procedures integral for evaluating the energy performance of buildings. By leveraging a specially designed spreadsheet tool, the case study not only exemplifies these calculation procedures but also explores the particulars of adaptive building envelope elements.

To facilitate understanding and application, the researchers have developed a dynamic spreadsheet tool that seamlessly demonstrates the EN ISO 52016-1 calculation procedures. What’s more, this tool is fortified with an additional sheet dedicated to unraveling the calculation procedures specific to EN ISO 52016-3. This user-friendly tool is designed not just for exemplifying calculations but is a practical companion for professionals seeking to perform detailed example calculations.
