The improvement of the energy efficiency of building stocks represents an important contribution for thereduction of the energy consumption in the European Union (EU), along with the decrease of greenhouse gases emissions.In this aim both the public administrations and the technical experts need reliable calculation methodology to assessbuildings’ energy performance. In this framework, despite the recent publication of the Standard EN ISO 52016, that deeplymodifies the approach to the energy building simulation by introducing a new hourly dynamic calculation model, thecurrent normative framework (EN ISO 13790) will maintain its validity until the incorporation of the new Standard in thenational Standards and Decrees (such as the Italian Standard UNI/TS 11300-1) will take place. The aim of this paper iscomparing the suitability of the simulation approaches proposed by the above-cited Standards in relation to their differentlevels of complexity and to the levels of details of the results provided by them. On purpose, a case study in which theenergy behaviour of a public building, sited in the Sicilian city of Trapani in the South of Italy, will be analysed and theresults of the simulations conducted according to the aforementioned Standards will be compared considering the outcomesof the EnergyPlus software as reference values.
