English abstract:
The present paper addresses the energy performance of existing apartment buildings in Prishtina, Kosovo and investigates the
potential energy-efficiency retrofit measures. Toward this end, three multi-family apartment buildings are selected. The study
involves a number of steps, including data collection on microclimate, buildingsī typology and construction characteristics, and
information concerning user presence and behaviour. The collected data is analysed, interpreted, and used for constructing
performance models of the selected buildings. Furthermore, modelling results are compared with available energy bills, resulting
in calibrated building energy use models that can be deployed to investigate the general potential of retrofit measures.
