Abstract: This paper describes a use case specific modification to the CityGML Energy Application Domain Extension (ADE) version 2.0. The application use cases considered for this paper are: (i) district level economic and ecological assessment of energy flows and selfsufficiency, (ii) life-cycle assessments (LCA) of climate related emissions and costs and (iii) validation of energy simulation models and results. For this purpose, the development of an extended schema for the Energy ADE is discussed. A brief explanation of the implementation methodology is also described in this paper.
