This work presents a novel occupancy simulation model for residential buildings. The main contribution is that occupancy is simulated at room level, as opposed to more course spatial resolutions in previous studies. The model is based on a time-use survey conducted in Denmark including several thousand households. It is formulated as an inhomogeneous hidden Markov model. The simulated occupancy profiles take into account the variables week day, time of day, occupant age and family type. Preliminary results show that they are in good agreement with the measurements.
