The LPG is a modeling tool for residential energy consumption
It performs a full behavior simulation of the people in a household and uses that to generate load curves.
It has various German households predefined.
It generates CSV files for the import into other simulation software.
Additionally, it generates a ton of different reports to help with modeling.
The focus is the individual household. It is possible to evaluate larger populations, but this will require significant work.
What is the LoadProfileGenerator NOT?
The LPG does not provide any load curves for commercial buildings yet.
The LPG does not provide any load curves for offices yet.
It is not well suited for simulating populations above about a 1000 people.
The current development of the Loadprofilegenerator is supported by the Bern University of Applied Sciences -
Laboratory for Photovoltaik Systems

Changes Fixed bugs in the simulation engine defaults Small bugfixes Fixed a major bug that lead to the occasional export of the values from pre-calculation-period of three days before the start of the real simulation.
