This chapter introduces the special research completed as part of the “13th Five-Year Plan” national key R&D project entitled “Research on Coordination Coupling Technology and Evaluation Index of Passive Energy and Active Energy Optimization in Public Institutions”—a study of the coordination and coupling model for active and passive energy optimization in public institutions. This chapter demonstrates the application of the energy supply and demand linear programming MARKAL model for use in regional public institution energy planning. Based on investigation and research into the existing MARKAL energy planning model, Liaoning Province was used as a test case for exploring the MARKAL model for use in public institution energy planning—one specific application was the provision of technical support for the realization of the “13th Five-Year Plan” in terms of active and passive energy coupling.
