BUILDING STOCK ANALYSIS

Dublin, Ireland

Decarbonisation starts with understanding demand.

Regional Energy Demand Analysis Portal is a digital platform that helps to inform and guide the decarbonisation process.

By understanding this consumption, planners and policy-makers can ‘prospect’ for local-level decarbonisation opportunities, including synergies, efficiencies that may otherwise be overlooked at the centralised planning level.

The standardised digital monitoring, reporting and analysis methodology can be used across distinct regions and aligned with existing decision-making processes.

Why energy demand insights matter...

REDAP enables a better understanding of consumption drivers at the macro and micro levels. In doing so, decision-makers can develop decarbonisation strategies and policy which will help to meet compliance requirements and targets. They will also be better prepared to engage with industry stakeholders and energy communities.

Transparency & Green Finance

'Green Finance' in the form of foreign direct investment, funds, bonds and loans is increasingly reliant on demonstrating sustainability. To do so regions need to monitor and report on regional energy performance, targets and intended actions.

Synergies & Efficiencies

Decarbonisation involves identifying local-level synergies and efficiencies. This includes recycling and distribution of waste heat from industrial sources, as well as the ability to deploy smart technologies for storage and generation.

Grid System Pressure

Modern digital lifestyles are placing an increased stress on established electricity distribution/transmission infrastructure. To ensure our energy demand can be supplied in a secure, cost-effective manner and that trade with the interconnected markets remains uninterrupted, developing local capacity is key.

Climate Security & Action

Climate change presents a range of extreme, unpredictable risks to our communities and our livelihoods. In order to build regional resilience, it is essential to develop tailored mitigation, adaptation strategies which address energy needs.

De-Risk Policy

Housing and transport service provision is costly. In order to ensure the feasibility and viability of development proposals, actions and supports need to be carefully aligned and stress-tested against energy demand forecasts.

REDAP is designed to be replicated across multiple regions. Learn more about how this can be achieved:

The overlap of other geographic datasets allows insights into the energy sector that are not available anywhere else, and enables an understanding of the socio-economic patterns of the local energy landscape.

Codema, Dublin's Energy Agency works with the four local government authorities in the greater Dublin area, a region with a population of 1.5 million people. Since 2015, Codema has performed energy demand analysis to inform policy, planning and investment decisions.
