Abstract: This paper reports a development of an urban scale energy demand model of the commercial building stock in Japan using building archetypes. In this model, we consider 23 types of HVAC system configurations which consist of 7 kinds of air supply system and 6 kinds of heat source system. Detailed modelling is carried out for these HVAC system configurations in the design of archetype buildings and energy system simulation using EnergyPlus. The developed model is used to evaluate how the assumption in the share of HVAC system configurations affects simulation results of energy demand and peak electricity demand of the sector.
