Demand & Load Forecasting

Demand & Load Forecasting is the process of analysing past, current and future demand for a product, services and infrastructure. Being able to link past and current consumption or demand to demographic, socio-economic indicators or Living Stand Measures (LSM) geographic datasets allow one to estimate future demand in a given geographic area, based on the changes in land use as well as future development potential. Over the last fourteen years, GEOTERRAIMAGE (Pty) Ltd and its partners have been developing core datasets which have enabled us to create commercial demand forecasting data solutions that cater for a diversity of client applications.

This process has included the mapping and classification of land use for over 6 million buildings in South Africa, covering over 70% or the South African Urban population.

Urban Demand or Load Forecasting related datasets provide a solution to the recurring problems of keeping track with service provision requirements and adequately serving a consumer or retail market. These datasets offer:

  • Estimates of the historical, current and future day time population
  • Estimates of the historical, current and future night time population
  • Historical, current and future number of residential, commercial, industrial and institutional building structures in major metropolitan areas
These datasets provide an independent, consistent and reliable source of data which offers planners an accurate understanding and an ability to predict land use changes, energy and service delivery needs, transportation planning, as well as ensuring the sustainable development of urban areas. Some of the applications of demand or load forecasting datasets include:
  • Transport planning
  • Water supply demand
  • Telecommunications capacity planning
  • Commercial centre development
  • Retail Site Selection
  • Local Government services and infrastructure
  • Disaster management planning
  • Energy demand forecasts
  • Marketing & Sales planning
