The process of optimizing building energy performance requires complex measurement, estimation and analysis. To address the complexity of designing for energy efficiency, models need to describe a building's different subsystems: The structure, processes, occupants, control equipment, etc. For example, a Building Information Model (BIM) describes a building's structure, while Business Process Models (BPM) can formalize processes going on in a building, and a Context Control Model (CCM) describes heterogeneous devices in relation to a building's context. To express the interdependencies between these subsystems an Enterprise Energy Performance Management Model (E-EPMM) is needed, integrating and extending the subsystems' models. In this paper we focus on the physical subsystem (the building and devices) presenting a Context Control Model for devices and appliances as an integral part of the E-EPMM. Further, we describe a middleware approach for instantiating and using th e CCM and its application in a multi-agent based energy performance simulation framework.
