Local energy mapping for urban energy retrofit

Abstract

This paper presents a localised Geographical Information System (GIS) based mapping approach using publicly available national and local datasets on housing and energy to identify spatially an area for energy retrofit (high energy using and/or high fuel poverty) within a UK town. A GIS-based bottom-up carbon mapping model (called DECoRuM) is then used to estimate energy use, and evaluate the potential of deploying a range of energy saving strategies (fabric improvements, heating system upgrades and solar measures) on a house-by-house level. The local energy mapping approach is found to be effective in visually communicating results to householders, community groups and local authorities for encouraging take-up.
