Building sector is one of the major consumers of energy produced in the country. This study was carried out to assess the energy performance of a typical academic building and to analyze the effect of energy efficiency measures on energy consumption for space cooling. EQuest software was used to model the year round energy performance. The simulation results were compared with annual metered energy usage. Moreover, a standard wall insulation was simulated in order to analyze its effect on energy saving. The results showed a considerable energy saving potential.
