Introduction

Vesta is a spatially explicit model that matches future projected demand for energy in the built environment to options for local and zonal energy supply. The primary focus for building this model was to assess impacts of different policies for local and regional energy production on non-renewable resource consumption, wealth (re)distribution, CO2 emission, compliance and public finance at the national level.

The demand for energy is modelled geographically specific for: residential objects, business locations and greenhouses. Changes in the built environment are well taken into account by using the results of the Land Use Scanner. Not included are: industrial usage, roofless agriculture, and transportation.

Applications

The Vesta model is used for the so-called: Startanalyse van de Leidraad, to calculate at the neighbourhood level the results of five alternative strategies.
