Abstract: Energy saving of buildings is an urgent issue to decrease global warming and to prevent energy depletion and, the life cycle energy management of buildings has been more crucial. In other words, it has become more important to understand the cooling/heating and electric power demands of the building for optimization of the design. Though many tools for load calculation have been developed all over the world, the validity and features of their calculated results have not been fully cleared yet. The purpose of this paper is to provide the information in which two simulation tools for cooling/heating loads calculation are compared with each other to implement the life cycle energy management. This study focused on TRNSYS and Micro-HASP/TES and cleared that their calculation results had similar trend.
