ABSTRACT: Comparatively, the energy used for the internal space thermal control (internal space
heating and cooling) is more closely related to the hotel building itself. This initial study explores the
relationships between the building design and the energy used for indoor space heating and cooling in
Auckland large hotels. To avoid the influences of different climates, urban density, surrounding
building and facilities of hotels, this study is based on the energy consumption data and building design
data of a number of 4-5 star large hotels (more than 100 guest rooms) with central air-conditioning
systems in the Auckland CBD. The mean energy used for indoor space heating and cooling is
calculated in both kW/m3/night and kW/room/night.
