Hello Everyone
For the demand calculations, i want to made three scenarios in WEAP, I have selected 2012 as current account and last year of scenario 2013, i used one set of data for different parameters in current accounts 2012 and in reference accounts I have to use the same data used in 2012, am I right? and then have to inherent my scenarios from this reference account year.
please guide me.

Hi Naveed,

Your Current Accounts year will be just 2012. While you can certainly edit the Reference Scenario, I like to leave it the same as current accounts (or the same trends, like population growth), and implement serious system changes in other scenarios.

For instance, if I want to see the impact of a wastewater treatment plant, I would enter my data into Current Accounts for the whole system. Then, I would make another scenario, maybe called Wastewater Treatment Plant, and use that one to build my treatment plant. Then, I can compare the differences between the scenarios in the Results view. Note that in Results view, there is no option to view "Current Accounts" - that's why I suggest leaving "Reference" the same, and making changes in other scenarios.

Hope this helps.
