Energy end-use - PROMETHEUS

From IAMC-Documentation
Jump to: navigation, search

In PROMETHEUS, useful energy demand (services from energy such as temperature in a house, lighting, industrial production, passenger-km etc.) is determined at a level of a sector/subsector.  Demand for energy services is assumed to be a function of macroeconomic drivers (GDP, population, household income, industrial activity) and the average costs of meeting energy services based on econometrically estimated elasticities. Energy demand is modelled in terms of useful energy services (such as heating, electric appliances, mobility, industrial steam) and in terms of final energy commodities, ensuring energy balance between useful and final energies at all times.

Energy end-use is distinguished in demand for:

  • industrial sectors;
  • buildings (residential, services and agriculture);
  • transport (road, rail, water, air);
  • Demand for non-energy uses
