Consumption profiles

Hello

Could anyone tell me the source of consumption profiles used in the self consumption analysis please? I'm particularly interested in the heat pump profiles, but generally interested in all of them, and finding resources with a wider range of profiles.

Thanks

Dear Ben,

the electrical load profiles we provide in PV*SOL have various origins. Here is an overview that I just compiled:

1-person household   Load Profile Generator
2 person household with one child   Load Profile Generator
2-person household   Load Profile Generator
2-person household with 2 children   Load Profile Generator

I hope that helps. I will try to find the time to update the help also in the near future.

Kind regards,
