Energy Consumption Profile of Hotel Buildings in Chongqing
14 hotels were selected in Chongqing for energy consumption profile analysis. And all of the hotel buildings are high quality hotels with 3-star or above. Due to the extremely local climate, the energy demand on heating and cooling is dominant in the total energy consumption. From the analysis, it is found that heating in winter accounts for more than half of the fuel use and cooling in summer is for around half of power consumption. Moreover, the chillers, pumps and terminals are responsible for one third of HVAC energy consumption respectively. As estimated from the samples, the energy consumption index of Chongqing hotel buildings is between 107 and 155 kWh/m2.
