Price-based interventions (such as Time of Use tariffs) are designed to shift the timing of certain everyday activities to mitigate peak electricity demand. On the one hand, it is argued that timing activities outside the peak hours would decrease the demand, easing the stress on the grid. On the other hand, recent literature suggests that householders are more likely to ignore timing of activities - due to convenience or due to activities considered 'non-negotiable' during peak hours. One way t...

Abstract Concerns about climate change, pollution and energy security have prompted policies aiming at replacing fossil fuels (in heating and cooling, and transportation) with electricity, presumably generated from renewable sources. Climate change itself is expected to increase the demand for cooling in buildings, which is generally met with electricity-powered air conditioning. We use hourly electricity demand from a sample of Italian residences over a full year to examine how sensitive reside...

Energy Fables: Challenging Ideas in the Energy Sector takes a fresh look at key terms and concepts around which energy research and policy are organised. Drawing on recent research in energy and transport studies, and combining this with concepts from sociology, economics, social theory and technology studies, the chapters in this collection review and challenge different aspects of received wisdom. Brief but critical introductions to classic notions like those of ‘energy efficiency’; ‘elasticit...

Peaks in electricity demand generate significant negative environmental and economic impacts. As a result, recent policy and research attention has focused on the potential for temporal flexibility of demand, especially in the context of intermittent low-carbon generation. Much of this work emphasises the need to understand what makes up the peak and to engineer solutions to meet this ‘normal’ consumption. However, today's patterns of temporal consumption may only be a snapshot of continuing cha...

Understanding what constitutes peaks and identifying areas of effective load shifting intervention becomes vital to the balancing of demand and supply of electricity. Whilst there is information about the aggregate level of consumption of electricity, little is known about residential peak demand and what levels of flexibility might be available. Specifically, methodologies linking people’s activities and residential electricity load profiles are typically under-investigated. The overall aim of ...
Demand side response (DSR) is widely seen as the main intervention tool to address issues of peaks and troughs in electricity demand. Businesses can provide DSR through a variety of measures, such as using on-site generators or reducing their electricity consumption in response to external signals. To date, energy intensive firms have been the main providers of demand side response. However, the realization of the technical potential of DSR requires that other electricity end-users also alter th...
