Abstract: The present contribution reports on the development of an urban energy modelling method, which enables the utilization of dynamic performance simulation for urban scale energy inquiries. The developed framework is composed of two components. The first component is tasked with the systematic reduction of the computation domain through clustering based sampling of the urban building stock. The second component, the focus of this paper, is concerned with the recovery of part of the lost diversity, due to the reductive procedure. This is achieved through readjustment of model parameters in multiple simulation runs. In this regard, data-oriented parametric modification of thermal properties of the building components and occupant related aspects has been attempted.
