In this report we describe a method to compare the real energy performance of new build houses. We put the average real energy use of a project in the calculation method of the energy performance of new houses. In that way we could compare the energy performance of the building permit with the real performance in practice. Because the calculation method normalize the energy use of a house by its user surface and surface of building shell, the energy performance of different projects could be compared also when the projects exists of different dwelling types. Also the energy performance of different energy concepts could be compared like all-electric houses with a heat pump or houses with a gas fired condensing boiler.
