Demand flexibility has recently seen large interest from Swedish policy makers, and dynamic pricing is thought to be a useful tool for improving efficiency, reducing emissions and enable the integration of more renewable generation. However, so far, few households have adopted such pricing schemes. In this seminar, I will present some previous, ongoing and future research by me and my colleagues that relates to this topic. In particular, I will explain why policy maker’s thrust for dynamic pricing of electricity may be overly optimistic and based on unrealistic assumptions about households’ behavior.
The new EU H2020 project Paris Reinforce (Delivering On the Paris Agreement: A Demand-Driven, Integrated Assessment Modelling Approach) has kicked off with its first meeting held in Athens in the beginning of June, 2019.
