This paper presents the design of a monitoring protocol to support retrofit strategies and drive the evaluation of a low carbon house. Monitoring is used during pre-intervention stage to facilitate the decision-making process, as well as in the post-intervention to evaluate the performance of the building and systems. The first phase refers to monitoring as a diagnostic tool with a view to reduce the uncertainty of suggested low carbon solutions by providing real measurements and evidence on building conditions, comfort, systems and occupants behaviour and interactions. The second phase utilises monitoring as an evaluation tool to quantify benefits and challenges of the retrofitting by providing information and analysis on the supply and demand reduction, the difference in comfort and the effectiveness of each intervention. The study explains the protocol development and discuss different monitoring depths and requirements based on the performance indicators required. A typical pre-1919 Welsh end-terraced dwelling is used as a case study to demonstrate the two phases of the proposed protocol. The protocol was developed as part of the Low Carbon Built Environment (LCBE) project at Cardiff
