Modelling domestic heat electrification

Joey Aoun, Carlos Calderon

Abstract: This paper presents a spatially referenced energy modelling framework of the domestic building stock at Low-Voltage (LV) electrical sub-station (i.e. Ridgeway New, Newcastle upon Tyne) spatial scale for area-based heat electrification project delivery. The framework brings together 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 UK Government datasets and the results are presented for the LV-area. Our results show that peak household energy demands (i.e. peak hourly ratios) are significantly higher than expected. In our discussion, we comment on the results, validation and model input limitations whilst we outlined future work.
