This research investigates the challenges related to recycling design-phase energy models during building operations.  Through statistical analysis of existing models, case studies in real-world model calibration, and a survey of building professionals, the research uncovers technical challenges, such as the difficulty of predicting occupant behavior during the design-phase, as well as non-technical challenges, such as legal concerns. In response, the author identifies solutions ranging from cost-effective model calibration tasks to guidance and contract language for building owners.
