I notice that there is no Supermarket model on DOE website and Openstudio online library seems should be.

Anyone knows where can I download a Openstudio supermarket reference model?

The Commercial Reference Buildings has .idf files for Supermarkets, but there is not a DOE Prototype for this building available in OpenStudio and the Create DOE Prototype Building measure.

I am using Openstudio and just not so familiar with EnergyPlus. Is there any way that I can load a Openstudio Supermarket Model somehow? And when I import IDF file in Openstudio, there are no schedule sets / schedule / construction sets / space types.

There isn't a way to translate an .idf into an .osm, especially with HVAC. You'll need to use the EnergyPlus .idf directly.

Thanks! It seems that I have to use Energy+.
