A corrigendum on

A Review of the Energy Performance Gap and Its Underlying Causes in Non-Domestic Buildings
by van Dronkelaar C, Dowson M, Burman E, Spataru C, Mumovic, D. Front Mech Eng (2016). doi: 10.3389/fmech.2015.00017

Reason for Corrigendum:

Correction 1: The original article is missing a co-author who contributed to this work, I apologize for this oversight. We would like to see him included after M. Dowson, as follows:

Chris van Dronkelaar1,2*, Mark Dowson2, E. Burman1, Catalina Spataru3, Dejan Mumovic1

1Institute for Environmental Design and Engineering, University College London, London, UK

2BuroHappold Engineering, London, UK

3Energy Institute, University College London, London, UK

Correction 2: Additionally his work has not been acknowledged in the paragraph “Classification of the gap.” In the original article, this section reads:

“These are the gap between compliance modeling and measured energy use, performance modeling and measured energy use and calibration and energy use with a longitudinal perspective:

1. Regulatory performance gap, comparing predictions from compliance modeling to measured energy use.

2. Static performance gap, comparing predictions from performance modeling to measured energy use.

3. Dynamic performance gap, utilizing calibrated predictions from performance modeling with measured energy use taking a longitudinal perspective to diagnose underlying issues and their impact on the performance gap.”

This should be:

“These are the gap between compliance modeling and measured energy use, performance modeling and measured energy use and calibration and energy use with a longitudinal perspective (Burman, 2016):

1. Regulatory performance gap, comparing predictions from compliance modeling to measured energy use.

2. Static performance gap, comparing predictions from performance modeling to measured energy use.

3. Dynamic performance gap, utilizing calibrated predictions from performance modeling with measured energy use taking a longitudinal perspective to diagnose underlying issues and their impact on the performance gap.”

Correction 3: His contribution to the article.

EB is CD’s academic supervisor during his doctoral studies and has reviewed the paper and provided feedback on the work, including direct insights from his own work.

Correction 4: Change of title as suggested by co-author, removing the word “regulatory,” new title:

A review of the energy performance gap and its underlying causes in non-domestic buildings.

The running title has been updated accordingly to: Review of the Performance Gap.

The original files of the article have been updated.
