Presented at: DAME-BC conference, Ispra, Italy, 13-14 november 2003.

In one of the four test houses built on the ECN premises, a validationexperiment has been carried out, comparing real-life energy performance of the total house with the predicted performance using a simulation model. Compared to the traditional housing market, a clear change in variable relevance for this energy efficient house was found. Valuable knowledge has been gathered on the energy balance for this house and on how to further reduce the uncertainty in experimentally obtained variables and in prediction of energy performance by numerical modeling.
