Morphing Climate Data to Simulate Building Energy Consumption

Topics: Energy,

This document investigates a new methodology for estimating a building's lifetime energy consumption. Because of increasingly volatile environmental conditions, the authors argue that data sets currently informing building energy use projections--that is, historical records--are insufficient. The framework's performance is illustrated through case studies in Boston, Miami, and San Francisco to account for diverse climate challenges and regional characteristics.
