EMSD has updated and reviewed the energy consumption profiles for a total of 97 energy-consuming groups that covers residential, commercial and transport sectors as follows:
- Residential Sector: 5 energy-consuming groups
- Commercial Sector: 60 energy-consuming groups
- Transport Sector: 32 energy-consuming groups
The update and reviews were accomplished by carrying out extensive and in-depth field surveys conducted mainly between 2011 and 2017 to identify a series of affecting factors regarding the operational and physical characteristics of concerned subjects, end-use technologies & equipment and energy consumption levels in order to evaluate the most influencing factors for the respective energy-consuming groups.
The energy utilisation indexes and benchmarking tools have to move with times and will be updated with the latest field surveys.
