ABSTRACT: This paper presents a process of systematic literature review as part of a PhD research focusing on the integration of energy efficiency simulation in the design process using building information modeling (BIM) platform. The main objective is to assess international researches carried out in the last ten years published at major conferences, proceedings and journals approaching the integration of the BIM platform and energy efficiency of buildings. It aims to identify trends and gaps in this area of research. A systematic literature mapping using a Systematic Mapping Study (SMS) tool characterized by the evidence-based paradigm has been carried out. It led to the identification of the main publications and research institutions focusing on the subject during the last ten years. The survey was conducted in the Web of Science, Scopus and Science Direct databases, which resulted in 131 papers adhering to the theme. The survey allowed the identification of the main research focus, as well as knowledge gaps and trends. Results have shown a comprehensive mapping, which defines the current situation of research in the field. They presented an overview of the scientific production, as well as pointed at needed research regarding the integration of BIM and energy issues in buildings.
