In the proposed work we aim at modelling building lighting energy consumption. We compared several classical methods to the latest Artificial Intelligence modelling technique: Artificial Neural Networks Ensembling (ANNE). Therefore, in this study we show how we built the ANNE and a new hybrid model based on the statistical-ANNE combination. Experimentation has been carried out over a three months data set coming from a real office building located in the ENEA ‘Casaccia’ Research Centre. Experimental results show that the proposed hybrid statistical-ANNE approach can get a remarkable improvement with respect to the best classical method (the statistical one).
