BUILDING STOCK ANALYSIS
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.
REDAP is designed to generate
data insights that are actionable.
Project Timeframe: November 2019 - April 2022
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.
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.
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.
