dc.description.abstract This paper presents the results of implementing 14 high-performance measures in a prototypical office building in a hot and humid climate using the DOE-2 simulation program. The objectives of this research were to discover high-performance measures applicable to office buildings in hot and humid climates and to develop a high-performance (maximum energy-efficient) building model that only uses technologies readily available in the contemporary market. The high-performance model showed 48% total energy savings above the ASHRAE 90.1-1999 code and 61% savings when compared to the calibrated simulation model of the case-study building. The results show that substantial energy savings can be achieved only by using common technologies. en_US
