Element Energy completes Green Deal modellingMay 13, 2011
Element Energy has recently handed over the Green Deal Model to DECC. This unique model provides the user with the following insights:
- A high definition representation of the UK housing stock into nearly 1,000 representative house types – this allows users to accurately assess the impact of Green Deal measures on the energy performance of homes and on CO2 savings achieved, across different portions of the housing stock.
- A unique quantification of consumers’ attitudes towards the different Green Deal policy attributes, gained from an extensive consumer survey – this allows users to accurately assess the effect of varying Green Deal attributes (e.g. technologies offered, contract period, up-front contribution, ECO contribution, baseline changes, etc.) on the uptake of Green Deal measures by consumers. In turn this allows estimation of the energy efficiency and CO2 savings which could be achieved through different configurations of the Green Deal.
- An optimisation tool – this allows users to quickly search through a large range of potential Green Deal configurations, to obtain an optimum Green Deal policy design, in terms of savings achieved and costs incurred.
