A top-down approach to modelling national energy demand: example of residential sector space heating
Book chapter, 2011

Decomposition and econometrics are used to model future energy demand for residential sector space heating, in the context of the development of the economy. The objective of this modelling work is to assess the roles of national trends in personal income, energy prices, carbon taxes, and general energy efficiency improvements. The outputs should provide an alternative yet complementary perspective on the development of energy demand to that obtained from models that focus on bottom-up technologies, se e.g., Chapter 14.
