Model for Analysis of Energy Demand (MAED)
The Model for Analysis of Energy Demand (MAED) evaluates future energy demand based on a set of consistent assumptions on medium to long term socioeconomic, technological and demographic developments in a country or a region.
Future energy needs are linked to the production and consumption of goods and services; technology and infrastructure innovation, lifestyle changes caused by increasing personal incomes; and mobility needs. Energy demand is computed for a host of end use activities in three main ‘demand sectors’: household, services, and industry and transport.
MAED provides a systematic framework for mapping trends and anticipating change in energy needs, particularly as these correspond to alternative scenarios for socioeconomic development.
Key questions addressed:
- How do social, economic, and technological factors affect future energy demand?
Sample data inputs:
- Energy sector data
- Scenario assumptions (socio-economic and technological)
- Substitutable energy uses
- Process efficiencies
- Hourly load characteristics
Sample quantitative outputs:
- Useful or final energy demand by sector/fuel
- Electricity demand
- Degree of electrification
- Hourly electric load
- Load duration curves
