Thesis supervisor: Tamás Csoknyai
Location of studies: Building Services and Process Engineering
Abbreviation of location of studies: EPGET

Description of the research topic:

a.) Antedecents:
EnergY assessment of residential building stocks have been a major issue in Europe to
establish a scientific background for policy planning. Such analysis have been caried out for
many Eu_countries, but for Turkey only minor steps have been made.
b.) Aim of research:
The objective is the energy assessment of the residential building stock in Turkey based on
existing statistical data and by developing a building typology and analyse model buildings.
Furthermore, energy saving and CO2 mitigation potentials are also to be assessed,
b.) Tasks, main items, necessary time:
1. literature review on other countries;
2. literature review ont he Turkish building stock;
3. development of building type matrix;
4. statistical data collection;
5. development of model buildings;
6. building modeling;
7. national level extrapolation
Necessary time: 3 years
c.) Required equipment:
special equipment not needed, but data purchase may be necessary.
d.) Expected scientific results:
As a result a more accurate picture will be aquired about the energy performance of the
Turkish building stock.
