    Abstract

    The ESRU Domestic Energy Model (EDEM) was developed to assist policy makers in analysis of options for improving carbon and energy performance of housing across a range of possible future technologies, behaviours and environmental factors. EDEM was formulated into an easy to use tool, built on results of detailed simulation models aligned with national housing survey data. From pragmatic inputs, EDEM can determine energy and carbon performance at any scale, from individual dwelling to national stock. EDEM was used to analyse potential upgrades including renewable energy systems and also to rate energy performance of dwellings as required by EU Directive (EU, 2002). This paper describes EDEM methodology, structure and operation then presents findings from application. While initial EDEM projects are for Scottish housing the methodology is applicable to other countries.
