This document introduces the process for the creation of a testbed for energy applications based on a semantic 3D city model for the municipality of Rijssen-Holten in The Netherlands. The creation of this dataset requires the consolidation from multiple data sources as well as a lot of manual work so the authors can warranty as much as possible the quality of the dataset so in can be used in several use cases. The data is stored following the OGC standard CityGML v2.0 and contain the geometrical and semantical information of CityObjects from the thematic modules Building, Vegetation and Relief. This data set consolidates the open weather data from the closest weather station to the study area located in Heino in the Netherlands. We discuss the decisions taken during the manual data collection process and we present some use cases that have already consume the dataset at the time of writing this document.
