In this paper, a bamboo steel composite testing building was designed and built to study the thermal performance of a new proposed bamboo steel composite wall. The heat flux meter method was adopted in the field test to measure the heat transfer coefficient of the composite wall. The energy consumption of testing building was measured to verify the validity of the simulation model. Then, the simulation analysis was conducted to study the energy performance of the composite walls compared with reinforced concrete wall in different climate regions. The result showed that the measurement value of heat transfer coefficient matched well with the theoretical calculation value, and both values meet the requirement of the standard. The simulation result showed that the composite walls had better energy performance and had great potential utilization in residential buildings in different climate regions.
