Modeling residential electricity consumption and efficiency within an economic framework
About the project
We developed the KAPSARC Energy Model (KEM) for Saudi Arabia to understand the dynamics of the country’s energy system. As part of that work, we are now exploring the representation of end-use energy demand. End-use energy efficiency can have cascading effects on other sectors in the energy economy, and these effects can differ from one region to another. The objective of this analysis is to explore the potential impact of higher residential efficiency on an energy system. This paper introduces a framework to measure the wider system effects of implementing structural and technical efficiency options. To accomplish this, an engineering-based residential electricity demand simulation has been linked with KEM for Saudi Arabia.
