This paper is an ASHRAE Level 3 study of the energy audit process carried out in an institutional building, The Umm Shaif Building, of The Petroleum Institute, Abu Dhabi, UAE. It undertakes the study by collecting data and conditional surveys. The energy loss locations are highlighted through psychrometric and infrared camera analysis. The detailed dynamic model has been simulated using the EnergyPlus® simulation engine. The details of the building envelope, and fenestration, the occupancy schedules, the equipment energy consumption and HVAC details are presented. The detailed building model is used to allocate the energy usage and identify key energy consumers. The main results are reported using monthly total energy consumption. The validation and calibration are performed through different statistical metrics including Coefficient of Determination (R2), Root Mean Square Error (RMSE) and Coefficient of Variance Root Mean Square Error (CVRMSE). Finally, energy conservation measures are suggested with the energy and cost savings.
