Seminar by Sha Yu, PNNL Scientist, on China's Building Energy Modelling
25 Aug 2014

Sha Yu presented her work on China's building energy modeling at a seminar held at CEEW office. Some of the highlights of her work on China's Building Energy Modelling include:

  • We conduct integrated assessment of Chinese building energy use at sub-regional level
  • The C and HSCW regions each account for one-third of China's building energy use
  • China's building energy use with climate change would decrease by 5% in 2050
  • With climate change energy use rises in HSWW region and declines in other regions

Building energy consumption currently accounts for 28% of China's total energy use and is expected to continue to grow induced by floorspace expansion, income growth, and population change. Fuel sources and building services are also evolving over time as well as across regions and building types. To understand sectoral and regional difference in building energy use and how socioeconomic, physical, and technological development influence the evolution of the Chinese building sector, Sha Yu’s study developed a building energy use model for China downscaled into four climate regions under an integrated assessment framework.
