as you know the number of modelling frameworks that are capable of handling multiple energy sectors at once with a high temporal detail is increasing (calliope, oemof,…), which is great. However, it is still quite rare - at least as far as I’m concerned - to have hourly demand profiles for non-electric energy sectors (I’m referring in particular to thermal demand), which would be needed as an input to perform such an integrated modelling. From the Wiki I can only find yearly data, in fact, whereas hourly profiles are available for electricity from TSOs data and other sources. Anyone has ever faced/solved this issue?
Now, I’m putting this topic in the “Modelling” section, even if it is bordeline with the “Open Data” section, because I see that potentially the oemof-demandlib could provide hourly heat demand profiles, but I’m not 100% sure about how it works (the documentation is, unfortunately, still work-in-progress) nor about how much is it extendable to contexts other than Germany (since I understood that it builds profiles based on data provided by the German system operator).
If others (as I hope) are interested in this topic, and unless there’s a quick solution that I was not able to find myself, we might alsodiscuss it at the next OpenMod meeting.
