Presented at: European Conference and Cooperation Exchange on Sustainable Energy Systems 2005, Vienna, Austria, 5-8 oktober 2005.

One of the research areas of the Energy research Centre of the Netherlands (ECN) concerns the built environment. Several facilities to conduct the research activities are at ECN?s disposal. One of these facilities, are five research dwellings located on the terrain of ECN. Measured data from these facilities together with weather data and computer models are used to evaluate innovative energy concepts and components in energy systems on their performance. The facilities are used for a broad range of research activities as well as product development. This paper explains more about the test facilities and the methods that are used to evaluate performance.
