The daily energy demand patterns for 14 department stores located in the five largest cities in Korea are surveyed to establish building-energy load models. Electricity and fuel consumption data are field-measured at one carefully chosen store among the sample stores that best represent the statistical characteristics of the department stores to extract hourly consumption profiles for the electricity, heating, hot water, and cooling loads. The data statistically processed to develop a generic computational model for future applications.

 Highlights: ► We surveyed and measured detailed energy consumption of department stores in Korea. ► We established demand models for electricity, heating, cooling and hot water. ► We made time series of 365 daily patterns and 24 hourly patterns for each month. ► We derived correction factors for region, insulation, building orientation, etc.
