Our weather dependent model of energy demand for space heating has been applied to estimate total daily demand for an entire region. Preliminary tests using a simplified version of the model have yielded results with accuracies comparable to those obtained previously for individual communities. Intraregional subareas exhibited considerable diversity in rates of demand, factors controlling demand and in overall accuracy of model predictions. Progress toward obtaining detailed building census and meteorological data for physical and physical-reference modelling of regional space heating energy ...
