    The environmental impact and energy consumption database is used for reducing carbon dioxide effectively in commercial buildings. This study is a part of a project that aims at the development of the database for energy consumption of commercial buildings in Japan. This paper describes the correction method for the primary energy consumption reduction rate with consideration of a temperature change at a hospital from 2010 to 2013.
