Abstract (EN): Recently, with the establishment of new thermal regulations, the energy efficiency of buildings has increased significantly, and various deep learning-based methods have been presented to accurately forecast the heating load demand of buildings. However, all of these methods are executed on a dataset with specific distribution and do not have the property of global forecasting, and have no guarantee of data privacy against cyber-attacks. This paper presents a novel approach to heating load demand forecasting based on Cyber-Secure Federated Deep Learning (CSFDL). The suggested CSFDL provides a global super-model for forecasting the heating load demand of different local clients without knowing their location and, most importantly, without revealing their privacy. In this study, a CSFDL global server is trained and tested considering the heating load demand of 10 different clients in their building environment. The presented results, including a comparative study, prove the viability and accuracy of the proposed procedure.
