Energy consumption of commercial buildings increases rapidly with the development of economics and improvement of living standards. In this paper, the energy consumption mix of commercial buildings is analyzed both in Shanghai and in China. The energy demand and trend for commercial buildings are forecasted. The gap in the field of commercial building energy conservation between China and developed countries is presented. On the basis of the analysis carried out, suggestions and countermeasures on energy conservation and management as well as energy-saving design standards for commercial buildings are put forward.
