Abstract:The commercial sector has been growing the past few years and as a result the amount of commercial buildings have been steadily increasing. Buildings have a significant contribution to the total energy use. In Curaçao electricity is relatively expensive and still only a small fraction of the total energy supply comes from renewable energy sources. To diminish the impact on the environment and reduce costs for business owners, energy efficiency of commercial buildings should be increased. Research has been done on the energy use of a shopping mall and eight supermarkets in Curaçao. The goal of the research was to determine how to assess the energy performance of these buildings.
