Abstract: The success of high-rise industrial buildings housing light manufacturing processes is a hallmark of industrial developments in Singapore. Limited studies have been conducted to evaluate the energy performance of such building types. This study seeks to address this information gap through the following major objectives: a.To investigate factors affecting energy consumption of industrial buildings. b.To examine the energy performance of industrial buildings at whole building level & systems level. c.To recommend & evaluate the effectiveness of energy conservation measures to improve the energy performance of industrial buildings. At whole building level, rigorous statistical studies are undertaken to identify the parameters affecting energy consumption as well as the key normalization factor to develop energy benchmarks. Field measurements, short-term energy monitoring of building services systems, user perception survey, and expert walkthroughs are conducted in twelve industrial buildings to study and understand the energy performance at building systems' level in detail. Energy conservation techniques are thus proposed to improve the building performance and energy efficiency.
