Development Building archetypes for urban scale is a complex task and requires a lot of extensive data. The archetype development methodology proposed in this paper uses unsupervised machine learning approaches to identify similar clusters of buildings based on building specific features. The archetype development process considers four crucial processes of machine learning: data preprocessing, feature selection, clustering algorithm adaptation and results validation. The four different clustering algorithms investigated in this study are KMean, Hierarchical, Density-based, K-Medoids. All the algorithms are applied on Irish Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) that consist of 203 features. The obtained results are then used to compare and analyze the chosen algorithms with respect to performance, quality and cluster instances. The K-mean algorithm preforms the best in terms of cluster formation.||Funding Details:||Science Foundation Ireland||Type of material:||Conference Publication||Start page:||60||End page:||67||Copyright (published version):||2018 ASHRAE||Keywords:||Urban building energy modeling (UBEM); Archetype development methodology; Energy Performance Certificate (EPC); Ireland||Other versions:||https://www.ibpsa.us/2018-building-performance-analysis-conference-and-simbuild-co-organized-ashrae-and-ibpsa-usa||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed||Is part of:||2018 Building Performance Analysis Conference and SimBuild||Conference Details:||2018 Building Performance Modeling Conference and SimBuild co-organized by ASHRAE and IBPSA-USA Chicago, IL, 26-28 September 2018|
