June 22nd 2019
Space heating and/or cooling often dominate energy demand in buildings. Therefore we compare monthly energy production with heating degree days and cooling degree days, which are indicators of heating and cooling demand. The result is shown in the 'avarage' plot, eg for Belgium. For most places we find that the heating and cooling load are not in balance with solar production. For the ninja/Europe models wind is also included, and for wind there are also significant imbalances with heating and cooling demand.
