An overview of commonly used methodologies based on the artificial intelligence approach is provided with a special emphasis on neural networks, fuzzy logic, and genetic algorithms. A description of selected applications to building energy systems of AI approaches is outlined. In particular, methods using the artificial intelligence approach for the following applications are discussed: Prediction energy use for one building or a set of buildings (served by one utility), Modeling of building envelope heat transfer, Controlling central plants in buildings, and Fault detection and diagnostics for building energy systems.
