Abstract: Urban planners often develop strategic sustainable energy planning processes that aim to minimize the overall energy consumption and CO2 emissions of buildings. Planning at such scales could be informed by the use of building energy modeling approaches. However, due to inconsistencies in available urban energy data and a lack of scalable building modeling approaches, a gap persists between building energy modeling and traditional planning practices. This paper develops a methodology based on bottom-up approach for GIS-based residential building energy modeling at a district scale. The methodology is applied to districts in Dublin and modeling results indicate where and what type of buildings have the greatest potential for energy savings throughout the city.
