Abstract: This paper presents a spatially referenced energy modelling framework of the domestic building stock of a Low-Voltage (LV) electrical sub-station (i.e. Ridgeway New) in Newcastle upon Tyne for area-based heat electrification project delivery. The framework brings together several public open sources of data to generate hourly energy consumption (i.e. heat fuel and electricity) for spatially referenced individual buildings. The simulation model has been validated against Government datasets and the results are presented at three spatial resolutions: LV-area; archetype; and individual building. Our discussion focuses on peak household energy demands highlighting that peak hourly ratios are significantly higher than expected. We also comment on the models' assumptions and uncertainties.
