|Abstract: ||Housing stock models predict long term changes in the stock to
inform national policy. They operate with a set of reference dwellings
representing the national stock, which are changed in response to different
scenarios. However, national level models do not consider geographical
variations (urban location/rural surroundings, index of multiple deprivation score,
etc.), so cannot aid in targeting improvement measures (eg: insulation, microgeneration,
etc.) locally. A geographically varying model can identify which
measures are most appropriate in a particular location. In this paper a method
has been designed and implemented using information at LSOA level (c. 700
dwellings each) to introduce geographical variation for a model of the North
East of England. It has been tested against DECC meter data and over 80% of
LSOAs are predicted to within ±25% of DECC’s data. The model allows
localised policies and interventions to be tested, and is principally of interest to
local government and energy efficiency initiatives.|
