Harmonization and development of methods for modelling of energy demands in spatial and temporal resolutions (DemandRegio)

The aim of the project is the development of harmonized methods for the transparent derivation of temporally and spatially resolved time series of the German electricity and gas demands. Based on extensive data research and the integration of available energy statistics, energy demand drivers are identified that allow both a temporal and a spatial disaggregation. In addition to an approximation of historical values, the project focuses on the development of forward-looking scenarios. The project contributes to the comparison of input data used in different approaches and to the reduction of uncertainty relating to data. This will enable a reliable comparison of different model and scenario results in the future.
