It can be concluded that even considering a relatively simple case study, it is hard to reach a good agreement between different tools and an additional calibration phase is necessary. In particular, it was found that the resolution of the window model can lead to considerable differences.
As a perspective, it seems to be a challenge if the building modelling is entrusted to non-expert users (e.g. from Building Information Modelling to Building Energy Modelling, where BIM-to-BEM interoperability issues might arise and affect the simulation results).
