The study aimed at making use of regression techniques and autocorrelation to model and to analyze the energy consumption in Building using the data collected from daily meter reading. Energy consumption models developed for the selected building revealed that the independent variables used in the modelling contributed to the overall output of the model. The models show that the independent variables in the building explain 93% of the variations in energy consumption. Residual analysis of both models confirmed the overall reliability of the model using graphical analysis.
