The demand of electrical energy in the household sector followed a nearly linear growth trend for a long time making demand forecasting relatively simple. However, in the last decade the growth has stalled due to energy efficiency policies, structural changes in the society and emergence of new technologies. In sparsely populated areas the population is continually declining which affects electrical energy consumption and increases average conductor length per customer. These changes in the operational environment pose challenges to demand forecasting. Historical data relating to the change factors could be used to improve demand forecasts. This study introduces a method that uses decomposition and timeseries analysis of open data to forecast future electrical energy demand. The method is used to forecast the electrical energy consumption for the household sector i na group of Finnish municipalities which have a declining population.
