In this study, a novel data-driven methodology is proposed to measure and verify energy efficiency savings, with a special focus on commercial buildings and facilities. The presented approach involves building use characterization by analysing typical consumption profile patterns and studying the building’s weather dependency. The characterization is then used to design a model able to
