Case study was performed to analyze energy load for department stores and develop energy load model to be applied to a cogeneration system. Energy loads of 14 depart­ments were analyzed based on energy load sheets written by operators and energy load of one department store was measured through modem communication for a year. Energy load of department stores showed various trends depending on when they were opened or closed, or by hour, day and month. In this paper, the measurement was compared with the data in energy load sheets and resolved, and energy load model for a department store was built. It is important to use an accurate energy load model for an accurate feasibility study applying a cogeneration system to buildings.
