Reducing energy consumption and managing energy supply/demand responses are key challenges facing the future built environment. The use of de-carbonised electricity to deliver space heating will make significant impact on CO2 emissions for the UK. A likely technology in UK homes is to replace conventional gas boilers with heat pumps. A high coefficient of performance may mean a reduction in energy consumed, in addition the potential to contribute to demand side response through switching controlled via pricing signals. Evaluating the likely energy demand patterns from such systems and understanding how the characteristics of such systems might affect comfort can be estimated using building simulation. This paper describes the modelling and calibration process of an UK family dwelling using high-resolution monitoring data. Monitoring data describing gas, electricity, hot water, window operation and room temperature at minutely interval are used in the process.
