Domestic Hot Water (DHW) is an important source of energy consumption for any type of building. I attach here the slides of a short (20 mins) talk I gave on this topic yesterday, at the Energy7 conference in Manchester UK:
I briefly outline an analytical bottom-up method to model DHW consumption accurately. We
1) derive the correlations between occupant groups and different seasons => MAIN TREND OF CONSUMPTION
2) generate a PREDICTIVE FORMULA for the DHW consumption of unknown occupant groups.
The slides are in PDF format (just use the pgup/pgdn keys on your keyboard to scroll). The talk is based on a paper I published last Spring, described in this entry of my blog.
Greetings from Manchester!
