Abstract

After the Great East Japan earthquake on 11 March 2011, a safe and eco-friendly urban city is strongly desired by Japanese citizens. Designing a safe and eco-friendly community from an energy-utilization viewpoint is discussed in this paper as a part of Cluster Energy Management System, CEMS, which is proposed by our group. A new software for predicting energy demand in a single house or a group of residential houses from dynamic behaviors of dwellers has been developed. As an example of the application, a reconstruction plan for Kamaishi-city in East Japan is designed. We have proposed an appropriate combination of energy supply for electricity and thermal energy by using the CEMS concept. A vision of energy supply introducing solar energy is also discussed.
