End Use Load Profile Inventory
To assist in finding the most relevant end use load profiles, several studies have previously summarized available datasets. This inventory looks to update those surveys for any newly published data and is focused only on datasets that contain hourly load profiles and are publicly available. Metadata about each data source is recorded, in an effort to aid researchers looking for existing load profile studies and wishing to filter by attributes such as location, customer sector, or end-use category.
This inventory was compiled by starting with existing lists of end-use load profile studies, updating these lists to eliminate overlap and including only studies with available data, and finally supplementing these lists with additional data sources suggested by experts at E3 and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
