Analysing climate impact on energy demand using the MOLAND model

By Xiaochen Liu and Bright Osei Twumasi


The importance and contribution of climate to energy demand are discussed. A linear regression model is developed to analyse future energy demand corresponding to climate change. The methodology for spatial analysis and integration to MOLAND are also provided in order to investigate possible consequences of different urban development paths on energy consumption patterns

Topics: Climate change, Energy demand, Spatial analysis, MOLAND, Energy consumption--Climatic factors, Energy consumption--Forecasting, Spatial analysis (Statistics)
