ElDeK - Electricity Demand Knowledge

The main objective of the project is to increase the knowledge concerning the electricity demand for end-users such as household customers. This includes knowledge concerning both the total energy demand [kWh] and power demand [kWh/h] for the customer type and different end-uses.

Contact person

The increased knowledge will be achieved through establishing mathematical and statistical methods for calculating both the total electricity demand (bottom-up) and the specific electricity demand for different end-uses (top-down) based on limited metered data.
