Abstract: This paper reports a development of an urban scale energy demand model for the office building stock located in Keihanshin metropolitan area, Japan. In the model, we consider 15 kinds of HVAC system configurations. Detailed modelling was done for these HVAC systems in the design of archetype buildings. The share of the HVAC system configurations is also quantified. Based on the simulation result, we discuss how consideration of HVAC systems in urban scale modelling is important.
