20 Residential Energy Consumption 6.5 Quadrillion BTU per year Scenario 3 Scenario 2 Scenario 1 Base Case
21 Residential Energy Consumption under the 3 Scenarios Consumption increases from 4.5 over 6.2 Quadrillion BTUs next 20 years in Reference Case Case 1-2 leads to additional 0.1 Quadrillion BTUs or nearly 2%. Worst Case Scenario increase of 0.3 Quadrillion BTUs or about 5%.
22 Space Cooling for Residential Energy Consumption Quadrillion BTU per year Scenario 3 Scenario 2 Scenario 1 Base Case
23 Space Cooling for Residential Energy Consumption, NEMS projection is to increase from Terawatts Terawatts Share of Total Scenario 1 Scenario 2 Scenario % 46% 54%
24 Non-marketed Renewables - Geothermal 12 Trillion BTU per year Scenario 3 Scenario 2 Scenario 1 Base Case
25 Conclusion Preliminary research into the impact of higher summer temperatures on residential electricity demands. EIA s NEMS model was used for making projections from Three Scenarios using increases of 2F, XF, and 6F over the time period. Space Cooling Demand increases by 40% in worst case and 10% in 2F case over the NEMS reference case.
26 Conclusion Assumptions reduce household discount rate from 30% to 10%. Fall in discount rate had little effect on Technology adoption. We do observe greater use of non-renewables: passive solar and geothermal heat pumps. More work to be done. Understanding the technology choices and diffusion.
27 NEMS Residential Model Inputs Housing Stock Component Housing starts Existing housing stock for 1997 Housing stock attrition rates Housing floor area trends (new and existing) Technology Choice Component Equipment capital cost Equipment energy efficiency Market share of new appliances Efficiency of retiring equipment Appliance penetration factors Appliance Stock Component Expected equipment minimum and maximum lifetimes Base year appliance market shares Equipment saturation level
28 NEMS Residential Model Inputs Building Shell Component Maximum level of shell integrity Price elasticity of shell integrity Rate of improvement in existing housing shell integrity Cost and efficiency of various building shell measures Distributed Generation Component Equipment Cost Equipment Efficiency Solar Insolation Values System Penetration Parameters Energy Consumption Component Unit energy consumption (UEC) Heating and cooling degree days Expected fuel savings based upon the 1992 Energy Policy Act (EPACT) Population Personal disposable income
29 NEMS Residential Outputs Forecasted residential sector energy consumption by fuel type, service, and Census Division is the primary module output. The module also forecasts housing stock, and energy consumption per household. In addition, the module can produce a disaggregated forecast of appliance stock and efficiency. The types of appliances included in this forecast are: Heat pumps (electric air-source, natural gas, and groundsource) Furnaces (electric, natural gas, LPG, and distillate) Hydronic heating systems (natural gas, distillate, and kerosene) Wood stoves Air conditioners (central and room)
30 NEMS Residential Outputs Dishwashers Water heaters (electric, natural gas, distillate, LPG, and solar) Ranges/Ovens (electric, natural gas, and LPG) Clothes dryers (electric and natural gas) Refrigerators Freezers Clothes Washers Fuel Cells Solar Photovoltaic Systems
31 Technology Choice The efficiency choices made for residential equipment are based on a log-linear function. The functional form is flexible, to allow the user to specify parameters as either life-cycle costs, or as weighted of bias, capital and discounted operating costs. Currently, the module calculates choices based on the latter approach. A time dependant function calculates the installed capital cost of equipment in new construction based on logistic shape parameters. If fuel prices increase markedly and remain high over a multi-year period, efficient appliances will be available earlier in the forecast period than would have otherwise.
32 Technology Switching Space heaters, heat pump air conditioners, water heaters, stoves, and clothes dryers may be replaced with competing technologies in singlefamily homes. The amount of equipment which may switch is based on a model input. The technology choice is based on a log-linear function. The functional form is flexible to allow the user to specify parameters, such as weighted bias, retail equipment cost, and technology switching cost. Replacements are with the same technology in multifamily and mobile homes. A time dependant function calculates the retail cost of replacement equipment based on logistic shape parameters.
33 Space Cooling: Room and Central Air Conditioning Units Room and central air conditioning units are disaggregated based on existing housing data. The market penetration of room and central air systems by Census Division and housing type, along with new housing construction data, are used to determine the number of new units of each type. The penetration rate for central air-conditioning is estimated by means of time series analysis of RECS survey data. Water Heating: Solar Water Heaters Market shares for solar water heaters are tabulated from the 1997 RECS data base. The module currently assumes that solar energy provides 55% of the energy needed to satisfy hot water demand, and the remaining 45% is satisfied by an electric back-up unit.

38 Caveats Temperature warming due to climate change could be expected to reduce HDDs during Winter months. Without reliable scenarios for Winter warming, EIA assumptions for HDDs were not changed in our scenarios. Additional uncertainty may arise from increased variability in temperature associated with climate change.
39 Scenario I For each Census Region: 1. Start with 30-year average annual CDDs (EIA reference case) 2. Determine days in cooling season 3. Calculate yearly CDD increment 4. Generate CDD series
40 Scenario I Step 1 1. Start with 30-year average annual CDDs Data is drawn from EIA s calculations of average annual CDDs between 1968 and 1997.
41 Scenario I Step 2 2. Determine days in cooling season Average temperatures over the past decade indicate the length of the cooling season.
42 Monthly Temp ( F) E_N_CENTRAL by Season Cooling Season ~ 90 days 20 Jan Feb Mar Apr May Jun Jul Aug Sep Oct Nov Dec E_N_CENTRAL Means by Season
43 Scenario I Step 3 3. Calculate yearly CDD increment 2 CDDs for each day in the cooling season, phased in gradually over
44 Example CDD Increment East North Central region has 90 days in their cooling season: 2 CDD warming 90 days = 180 CDDs added to the cooling season. Over this is an increment of 8.6 CDDs per year.
45 Scenario I Step 4 4. Generate CDD series for Starting with the 30-year average CDDs, increase each year s CDDs by the increment.
46 Scenarios III III. Gradual warming of 6 F over Scenarios III is similar to I, but with a warming of 6 F rather than 2 F.
47 Scenarios III and IV III. IV. Gradual warming to historical maximum One-time increase to historical maximum Scenarios III and IV are also similar to I and II, but use the historical max CDDs as the target level for 2025.
48 NEMS Results Running the NEMS Residential, Commercial and Industrial modules with the standard assumptions results in an increase in cooling demand. Other variables remain largely unchanged. Recall that these are first order effects of Summer warming only.
