Abstract: Energy consumption has been on the rise globally due increased usage across various sectors and with buildings having the second largest energy consumption of 31% of the nation’s total electricity output. It is difficult but definitely possible to cut energy demand. While attention has been devoted to help stakeholders understand the energy performance of their buildings so as to make cost effective improvements, comprehensive research on energy performance and energy use profiles across NUS campus accommodation is still missing. With increasing size of the student body coupled with stronger demands for housing services over the years, this study sets out to analyse the energy performance of campus accommodation buildings in NUS. The main objectives of this dissertation will be to explore the differences in energy consumption and energy use intensities across the various campus accommodation as well as to identify seasonal patterns and underlying trends across campus accommodations. Through literature review, energy performance evaluation methodology will be explored, leading to the development of an integrated and comprehensive evaluation methodology for the purpose of this study. This study would provide a thorough understanding of energy use at a whole-building level across various categories of campus accommodations. It attempts to provide strategic information on energy consumption, energy use intensities and energy use patterns, paving the way for further analysis and implementation of measures to enhance sustainability. However, limitations attributed to the lack of higher resolution details of building characteristics and actual conditions of occupants & behaviours paves the way for further studies.
