    Abstract

    In this study we aimed to identify characteristics of energy consumption of accommodation building by drawing on 2009 fiscal year of DECC survey data. Conducting statistical analysis on the base-load and the fluctuation-load on a national scale derived from patterns of variation in the monthly energy consumption, we obtained estimation equations for energy consumption rate. To determine the base-load rate, we focused on differences between heat-generation equipments in the accommodation buildings and classified them into three categories: electrical, fuel-based, and electric-fuel hybrid. We then carried out the multiple regression analysis for each category. As a result, we obtained accurate estimation equations for the electrical and the fuel-based heat-generation equipments. And to determine the summer and the winter fluctuation-load rate, we were able to obtain accurate estimation equations using the multiple regression analysis.
