The world’s population, approximately 90% spend most of their time inside the buildings, which results in 40 – 45% of the total energy consumption. The annual demand of building energy is increasing in the range of 1.5 - 1.9% due to growing world’s population. To reduce energy consumption and wastage, effective energy management within the buildings is very essential. Therefore, the concept of smart and energy efficient buildings has become a future trend. It becomes challenging to design and develop the control system for such buildings that require energy efficiency with optimum comfort level for dwellers. In this connection, various studies have been conducted to meet the challenges in this area. However, very limited studies are reported in the literature, especially on the relationship model between energy consumption and comfort parameters within the building. Therefore, in this work, a robust stochastic control model (RSCM) has been developed between the relationship of energy consumption and comfort parameters. The developed model will be helpful for the further minimization of building energy consumption with maximum comfort level in designing building control system.
