Presentation Transcript
motivation
Motivation
  • Helps energy companies save $$$
  • To help consumers see if they are paying more money for the same amount of energy.
research questions
Research Questions
  • How does climate effect trade?
    • How does temperature effect total energy consumption?
  • Hypothesis-
    • Temperature accounts for 70% of total energy consumption.
methods and data
Methods and Data
  • Annual Average temperature, Cooling degree days, Heating degree days and Sum of degree days(NC State climate office)
  • Set of total energy consumption data with smaller sub sets of data (State energy Data System) from NC
      • ESTCP- Electricity total consumption
      • RFTCP- Residual fuel oil total consumption,
      • NGRCP-Natural gas total consumption
  • Years 1960-2009
  • Compared the sets of data by finding the correlation between them and there detrended values
background information
Background Information

Cooling Degree days-CDD

Heating Degree days-HDD

Key

    • HDD= heating degree days
    • CDD= cooling degree days
    • SADD= sum of annual degree days
    • AV temp= average temperature
  • Fitted Total= normalized Energy consumption
  • Fitted ESTCP KKWH= Electricity Total Consumption
discussion
Discussion
  • Temperature effects energy consumption by about 50%
    • The research rejected my hypothesized 70% but supported the facet that it does have some affect
  • Didn’t account for other ways of heating and power such as…
    • propane
    • solar power
    • wood burning
    • wind power
  • If theses were taken into account how much of a difference would it make?
future research
Future Research
  • How does temperature effect agricultural trade?
  • How do storms effect trade?
  • How does the effect of temperature on energy trade effect the price of energy?
  • How do natural disasters effect agricultural trade?
  • How do hurricanes effect the economy of the places they hit?
  • How does climate effect energy trade?
  • How does climate effect energy consumption?
approach
Approach
  • Total energy consumption and temperature correlated over 50, 30, and then 20 years
    • There seemed to be more of a pattern during the last 30 years and the correlations for the most part increased
    • Since the 30 year period increased the correlations, I correlated the 20 year period
results
Results
  • The research rejected my hypothesized 70% but supported the facet that it does have some affect
  • Temperature effects energy consumption by about 50%
