Energy Modelling for the Residential Sector A Summary of the SATIM Methodology

"Energy economy environment models such as TIMES are often used to look at opportunities and costs of reducing greenhouse gases (GHGs). The South African TIMES model(SATIM) has been developed for this purpose and its methodology is documented online. This document presents a brief overview of the SATIM residential sector methodology. This document will be of great interest to researchers dealing with social conscious mitigation actions and who are faced with sparse data for modelling the residential sector."
