To apply the BIM technology to the construction domain, it is necessary to prepare the environment before the development of the applied technology. This study focuses on the requirements for applying the BIM technology to the energy domain in various construction domains. The purpose of this study is to suggest the core element technology based on the BIM data interoperability among the requirements for the BIM-based energy performance analysis. To achieve this purpose, the authors have investigated the advantage of the BIM-based energy performance analysis through a comparison with the traditional energy performance analysis and suggested requirements for energy performance analysis in the open BIM environment. In addition, the authors have suggested a configuration plan of the core element technology to improve the BIM data interoperability. Architects can use the existing data to find the best design alternative that optimizes the building energy efficiency without extra modeling work for the energy analysis using the suggested BIM technology in this study.
