  1. 1. Demand Side Response : Exploring How and Why Users Respond to Signals Aimed at Incentivizing a Shift of Electricity Use in Time

    Author : Isak Öhrlund; Cajsa Bartusch; Peter Juslin; Mikael Larsson; Jacopo Torriti; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Demand response; Electricity use flexibility; Time-varying rate; Dynamic pricing; Price-based program; Time-of-use; Demand charge; Real-time pricing; Real-time feedback; Prosumer; Non-price signal; Non-price incentive; Engineering Science with specialization in industrial engineering and management; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot industriell teknik;

    Abstract : With increased weather-dependent electricity production and electrification at the heart of the ongoing transition away from fossil fuels, peaks in electricity demand are set to increase and become increasingly difficult to meet, which threatens the functioning of the electric power systems that our society depends on. Time-varying electricity rates, which aim to incentivize electricity users to shift their electricity use in time, have been proposed as a key instrument in alleviating grid imbalances and bottlenecks.

  2. 2. Demand Side Activities for Electric Load Reduction

    Author : Juozas Abaravicius; Energihushållning; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Load demand; Energiforskning; Energy research; demand response; peak load reduction; load management; demand side;

    Abstract : The research described in this thesis, focuses on some activities on the demand side that could reduce peak load in electricity system by using consumer flexibility i.e. by increasing the demand side response to signals coming from the energy market. READ MORE

  3. 3. Power to the people : electricity demand and household behavior

    Author : Mattias Vesterberg; Runar Brännlund; Chandra Kiran Krishnamurthy; Maximilian Auffhammer; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; electricity demand; real-time pricing; demand flexibility; elasticity; appliance-level data; end-use; media; contract choice; de-regulated market; household behavior; intermittent electricity production; efficiency; imperfect information;

    Abstract : Paper [I] Using a unique and highly detailed data set on energy consumption at the appliance-level for 200 Swedish households, seemingly unrelated regression (SUR)-based end-use specific load curves are estimated. The estimated load curves are then used to explore possible restrictions on load shifting (e.g. READ MORE

  4. 4. Demand Responsive Planning : A dynamic and responsive planning framework based on workload control theory for cyber-physical production systems

    Author : Hakan Akillioglu; Mauro Onori; Marcello Colledani; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Demand responsive planning; continuous workload control; cyber-physical production systems; evolvable production systems; dynamic capacity adjustment; Industriell ekonomi och organisation; Industrial Engineering and Management; SRA - Production; SRA - Produktion; Planering och beslutsanalys; Planning and Decision Analysis;

    Abstract : Recent developments in the area of Cyber-Physical Production Systems prove that high technology readiness level is already achieved and industrialization of such technologies is not far from today. Although these technologies seem to be convenient in providing solutions to environmental uncertainties, their application provides adaptability only at shop floor level. READ MORE

  5. 5. Studies in Local Public Transport Demand

    Author : Johan Holmgren; Jan Owen Jansson; Lars Westin; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Public transport; Demand; Elasticity; Price; Service; Time series; Panel data; Kollektivtrafik; Efterfrågan; Elasticitet; Pris; Trafikutbud; Inkomst; Bilinnehav; Tidsserieanalys; Paneldata; Economics; Nationalekonomi;

    Abstract : This thesis consists of four papers where the overall purpose is to contribute to the understanding of how local public transport demand is affected by different factors. An underlying theme running trough the thesis is the two-way relationship between public transport demand and the service level caused by the fact that capacity and quality are joint products.
