Our energy systems are complex structures encompassing the supply, transmission, distribution and demand of energy. Understanding the role of the built environment within this energy system is crucial for understanding energy demand, and requires an upscaling from building performance modelling to community energy modelling. It also requires a suite of modelling options that can cope with the specific characteristics of different locations, and the projected changes likely to impact energy use of that area of built environment in the future. This study demonstrates the different factors to consider when approaching such modelling, and how the contrasting demand characteristics of two different countries (UK and India) can be implemented into the models.
