Under the Paris Agreement, Japan promises reducing 26 % from greenhouse gas emissions in 2013 by 2030. We have proposed a concept of Cluster Energy Management System, CEMS, which can design a highly saving-energy network based on demand simulation of communities consisting various different residents. As an example of CEMS designing a good thermal and electricity demand-balance among a network of residential houses, commercial and nursing facilities is introduced. The network can use almost

We can simulated saving about 40 % in prime-energy consumption and about 45 % reduction of CO2 emission by designing an example case of the CEMS, which combines fuel cells and electric vehicles in a community, where 200 families including elderly people are living. We concluded that it would be possible to reduce primary energy consumption and CO2 emission by nearly a half amount or more by introducing the CEMS.
