This paper outlines a simplified procedure for the certification of existing public buildings based on measured energy consumption, which is applicable even in countries where information on the building stock is not currently available. Energy consumption data collected for a number of buildings is used to develop energy benchmarks for typical and good practice energy performance. The rating procedure is based on a comparison between the energy consumption of each building and the derived benchmarks; a process that is illustrated in a sample of 88 Irish primary schools. The paper concludes with a discussion on the next steps to a more detailed measured rating procedure.||Funding Details:||Not applicable||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Publisher:||University of Minho||Keywords:||ratings; Energy; Ratings; Measured; Consumption||Subject LCSH:||Energy consumption--Measurement
