In this paper, the effects of temperature were quantified with respect to energy source (electric power, gas, or petroleum-based fuels) and the effects of temperature increase associated with heat island phenomena and global warming on the energy consumption of a city as a whole (civilian, industrial, and traffic sectors) were studied. Results showed that in the civilian sector in all parts of Osaka Prefecture, if the year-round temperature increased by 1 degree Celsius, the annual energy consumption would decrease in houses, but increase in business buildings. It was confirmed that in the industrial sector variation in energy consumption caused by changes in temperature are extremely small and the effects are negligible. In the traffic sector, the annual energy consumption would increase slightly as the temperature rose, but in comparison to the civilian sector, the effect would be extremely small.
