It’s important to deal with building energy-saving in one city level and plan the energy system from one building to one city level. It’s suggested strongly to conduct urban building energy planning in urban planning system in China. There are two main characteristics of urban building energy system. That is, firstly, the terminal building energy demand is dynamic timely, such as the heating, cooling, gas and electricity load of 8760 hours a year with peak and valley load. Secondly, the energy demand, energy sources supply, energy equipments and networks of heating, cooling, gas and electricity are distributed in urban space. It’s meaningful to conduct an innovative urban energy planning with space distribution and time dynamic simulation. In this paper, the energy planning method with space and time characteristics is presented and analyzed briefly. In the meanwhile, to meet the same energy demand in buildings, such as heating, air conditioning, gas and electricity, different energy equipments such as boiler, CHP, CCHP and heat pump based on different energy sources such as coal, gas and electricity can be planned and should be alternative among those energy sources and equipments. Thus, a well alternative urban energy system with high energy efficiency and low environmental emission should be simulated. Therefore, an urban building energy planning (UBEP) simulation tool developed by our research group is introduced. And finally, a case of energy planning in Beijing City in 2010 for heating and air conditioning system is simulated dynamically and analyzed.
