Simulated load profiles for DOE commercial reference buildings (17 years using NSRD data)

This data set consists of simulated load profiles (1998-2014, 30 minute profile) for commercial customers using the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory residential prototype building models and the US Department of Energy's commercial reference building models made for EnergyPlus simulation software (versions 8.4 and 8.5).

This data makes use of modeled weather data using the Physical Solar Model (PSM) downloaded from the National Renewable Energy Laboratory's National Solar Radiation Database for 15 sites in the continental US (downloaded 09/11/2016).
