Guiyang is the capital city of Guizhou province in southwest China, located in the Mild Climatic zone in China. With the economy booming in recent years, the energy consumption in heating and cooling buildings in Guiyang continues to increase. This paper presents a computer simulation study using DeST software package, which is broadly used to simulate building energy consumption in China. The all-year round simulation for cooling and heating load for a small hotel building has been carried out with various parameters, and the results will be useful for the guidance of energy efficient building design in Guiyang.
