An efficient urban energy system could be a highly diverse and well-integrated structure of buildings and systems. Such a structure needs an energy management framework capable of providing information on appropriate energy saving measures at any scale of implementation. This paper proposes a method to design such a framework. For quality assurance, a method to deal with the uncertainty in building properties and in operational conditions of buildings and systems is designed into the framework in order to model the energy use during the operation phase of buildings.
