This thesis presents energy consumption analysis of Newfoundland. A detailed data analysis indicated that energy consumption per person in Newfoundland is 185.34 kWh/day. To analyze the energy consumption in houses, a data logger is designed and implemented, which can measure and record inside, outside house temperature and electricity consumption. Similar data loggers were installed in two houses in Newfoundland and data was logged for more than a year. A detailed analysis of the logged houses energy consumption is presented in the thesis. A Thermal model of two houses is developed in the Building Energy optimization (BEopt) software and Newfoundland power logged data is used to validate the houses BEopt model. For longrange energy consumption analysis in Newfoundland, the EnergyPLAN and Long-range Energy Alternative Planning (LEAP) software is used to analyze the Newfoundland existing energy consumption. EnergyPLAN software is considered to show the future energy model scenario with additional wind energy integration to the system. On the other hand, long-term energy consumption, production system and forecast up to year 2030 are presented using LEAP software. Three possible future energy system scenarios are proposed and analyzed to understand the Newfoundland energy demand and supply system.
