AbstractA model apartment building was developed based upon surveys and computer simulations determining the effects of climate and size on energy consumption. A norm was derived for the energy consumption of any high-rise residential building at any location in Canada. Possible reductions in energy consumption resulting from inexpensive modifications in four existing buildings were also determined.
