I have a question regarding EnergyPlus. I know that there a lot of examples available in the EnergyPlus installation but is there something like a model library or marketplace for EnergyPlus Models. I could need different kind of models and building for a task I am currently working on and it would safe me a lot of time if there are already setup models. Any help is appreciated.

You may want to start with the 16x US DOE Commercial Prototype Models - the ZIP files contain the IDFs. Those models are often the basis for a wide range of assessments (in the US and elsewhere), namely to evaluate/compare contributions from various vintages of ASHRAE 90.1 and IECC. Likely adaptations will be required to suit the European context.

My reply should not be considered as a definitive answer (there are lots of models out there), but it is an answer. Good luck!
