One of the goals of CommONEnergy is to define drivers for retrofitting, as the basis to develop energy retrofitting concepts. In order to define those drivers, shopping centres need to be analysed not only as buildings for retail activity but also as places for social interaction with typical functional patterns. Understanding these functional patterns allows identifying relevant performance indicators, which are key when retrofitting a shopping centre.
