Electricity and heat demand profiles of communities in remote areas

RAMP was initially designed and is still mainly used to simulate electricity (and heat) demand profiles in remote areas at the community scale. This default version of the software is accessible here.

We list below some representative case studies in this field.

Mobility and charging profiles of electric vehicle fleets

The other main active field of application of the RAMP project is the generation of mobility and charging profiles of electric vehicles' fleets. The customised version of the software that makes this possible takes its own name of RAMP-mobility and is hosted on a repository of its own.

In a recent publication, we showed how RAMP-mobility can be used to generate such profiles for all European countries based on few, simple data, while accounting for environmental and socio-demographic differences.

Demand profiles of energy for cooking and domestic hot water in residential buildings

RAMP can be also customised to generate other types of energy-use profiles. For instance, it has been used to simulate cooking or domestic hot water energy consumption profiles for large user aggregates in European countries.

These two applications have been developed for the purpose of specific projects are currently not being further developed.
