This paper describes the methods used to determine hourly activity load curves for use in energy models. It explains how Conditional Demand Analysis curves have been used in combination with appliance penetration levels to develop appliance hourly load curves based on and representative of measured load data. It shows how these can be combined to determine hourly activity load curves, which contribute to the accuracy of energy models used for energy policy development and energy planning.
