Demand Estimation Key Parameters

What we do…..

in order to…..

represented by a parameter called…..

for use in industry calculations….

Estimate how consumers typically use their gas during a year
develop consumer consumption profiles
the Annual Load Profile (ALP)
Demand Attribution, AQ and opening read estimation
Estimate how gas consumers usage reacts to changes in weather
understand and define weather sensitivity profiles
the Daily Adjustment Factor (DAF)
Demand Attribution, AQ and opening read estimation
Understand how gas consumers will react in the event of extremely cold weather
understand and estimate peak day demand
the Peak Load Factor (PLF)
Capacity invoicing
Categorise gas consumers by their different usage patterns
ensure profiles are available for a wide range of consumer types
the End User Category (EUC)
Demand Attribution, AQ, Capacity invoicing and opening read estimation
Understand and explain the relationship between weather and gas consumption
produce a variable which we can depend upon as a ‘building block’ for modelling
the Composite Weather Variable (CWV)
Demand Attribution, AQ and opening read estimation
Define a basis for ‘seasonal normal’ weather
enable profiles to be represented at ‘average’ conditions which creates stability for industry
the Seasonal Normal Composite Weather Variable (SNCWV)
Demand Attribution, AQ and opening read estimation
