    Abstract

    This research intends to define base load and fluctuation load from the pattern of monthly changes in the energy consumption of office buildings in Japan obtained from the investigation in 2009 fiscal year, and to clarify the characteristics of energy consumption by determining estimation equations. It became possible to confirm the tendency by the estimation equation obtained from the multiple regression analyses of base load rate. The reliability of the estimation equation of fluctuation load rate by the multiple regression analyse was higher than that of the estimation equation obtained from the simple regression analysis of the average yearly temperature.
