Abstract

An econometric model is used to estimate urban residential electricity demand in Nigeria. The model uses residential energy demand data from 1975 to 2005. Shortcomings of the econometric model are highlighted, and system dynamics modeling is proposed as a complement to the econometric approach. It is suggested that this hybrid approach comprising econometric techniques and system dynamics may lead to better energy demand forecasting in developing countries.
