Global warming will likely change the energy demand associated with warming and cooling residential and commercial buildings. The spatial distributions of anticipated changes in heating and cooling degree days (HDD's and CDD's) are shown here. Annual HDD and CDD averages of 13 models run with 20th century conditions (203cm) and one particular scenario of predicted population growth and economic development (sresa2) are shown here.
