Whole building energy models do not always provide satisfactory predictions to facilitate decision making during design, due to large number of uncertainties in model input parameters. CBEI presents a computationally e?cient process for uncertainty quanti?cation, sensitivity analysis and automated calibration of building models. This is demonstrated using an energy simulation model of a medium sized o?ce building.
