Abstract

Increasing interest in low carbon electro-thermal heating technologies, such as electric heat pumps and combined heat and power units, may in the near future significantly change the character of domestic electricity and gas demand profiles. To understand the impact of adoption of such technologies it is necessary to appreciate fully the multi-energy aspects of such technologies, and indeed of any other domestic energy service demands. Such holistic treatment is necessary to fully capture the effects of coincidence in various energy service demands within and across dwellings. To that end this paper introduces and details a high resolution domestic multi-energy model comprised of physically ..
