Abstract: Performing building life cycle assessment at city quarter level is a necessary step towards developing and implementing strategies for sustainable urban development. This paper compares energy demand calculation results of two established building simulation tools and a calculation according to the German Energy Saving Ordinance with those of an own developed tool. This tool is called urbi+ and calculates the life cycle based energy demand of residential buildings at city quarter level. It is shown that the simplified method for energy demand calculation of the building's use stage delivers resilient results on building as well as on city quarter level.
