The CERN campus differentiates those facilities linked to the life at CERN with respect to those areas linked to the accelerators and experiments. In this context, the CERN campus comprises work facilities (offices, labs, workshops, etc.), social facilities (restaurants, hostels, banking services, post office, clubs and a kinder garden) and visitor facilities. To address the issues related to the reduction of energy consumption, the application of the applicable norms and an eventual re-use of waste process energy, a model describing the estimated energy consumption of the building stock in the Meyrin site has been setup. This model has been used to analyze the current situation, it is now used as a support for the CERN consolidation and it will be used for future urban developments. An example showing the energy concepts of a building under construction at CERN is presented.
