As for any subject, there is a wide range of material on Building Performance Analysis available on the internet. This page provides a selection of links that take the reader to pages and documents that contribute deeper insights on the topic. These links are regularly updated, however with the continuous change of the web it is not impossible that some links become inactive at some point; please do notify us at firstname.lastname@example.org if that happens. It is recommended that one keeps copies of material that are of value for scholarship or other activities.
