Modelling to better understand and predict household energy demand
Energy system models (ESMs) help energy experts predict and describe long-term impacts of energy systems. While ESMs have yielded useful results on energy supply, there is a lack of accuracy in simulating the residential sector, as the diversity of dwellings produces a broad spectrum of consumption patterns. To address this issue, the EU-funded WHY project will implement causal modelling to quantitatively analyse people’s everyday decisions regarding energy consumption and their reactions to interventions. This will result in innovative methodologies for short- and long-term load forecasting which will be benchmarked in different use cases ranging from microgrid size to international contexts. The project will provide greater insight into household energy consumption and improve energy demand modelling in leading ESMs.
