Abstract: Integrated energy management at both the district and building scales can potentially improve multi-level energy efficiency, but such a solution requires the exchange and analysis of energy performance information from different stakeholders. With the complexities of energy management, there are numerous potential stakeholders and a considerable amount of information to consider. Therefore, a primary challenge is the development of a method that identifies the key stakeholders and extracts key information that supports their performance goals. In this paper, a systematic approach to identify stakeholders and key performance indicators (KPIs) is proposed to draw key information for multi-level energy performance analysis. Firstly, a three-task method for the identification and prioritization of stakeholders is suggested; secondly, a bi-index method to select the KPIs that underpin the stakeholders’ performance goals is defined; finally, the proposed methodology is validated using a case study. The result demonstrates the feasibility of the methodology and illustrates that the selected KPIs contribute to the attainment of key information required to carry out a multi-level energy performance analysis.
