The objective will be to provide a simple, user-friendly, and flexible energy model which can be used by our employees and other bodies to allow assessment of energy demands across a specific area on an hourly basis. This should be capable of modelling a set of realistic energy load and energy supply profiles to examine the coincidence between these, to estimate energy storage requirements. Key outputs will be in the form of customer energy costs to understand the impact that different energy supply scenarios will have on customer energy bills.
The following success criteria are proposed:
- The model should replicate the outputs of the existing (when final corrections are made) modelling and reporting.
- The model should be easily understood and capable of use by our employees following guidance and training by Delta Energy & Environment.
- The model should provide sufficiency functionality to allow a range of energy load and supply profiles to be met.
- The model should be simply structured to allow future upgrades to be made by WWU and others.
