This Excel Workbook provides a high-resolution model of domestic whole house electricity demand. The use of domestic appliances within a single UK dwelling is simulated over a 24-hour period at a one-minute time resolution. The simulation incorporates and utilises previously developed models of active occupancy ( and domestic lighting ( The user may configure the month of the year, the total number of residents that live at the dwelling and whether a week day or a weekend day simulation is required. The Workbook contains all the necessary data to run the simulation and includes the Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) source code. The model is discussed in the journal paper "Domestic electricity use: a high-resolution energy demand model" (
