BC3 Seminar: Demand flexibility in the Swedish electricity market
September 11, 2018 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm
“Demand flexibility in the Swedish electricity market“
Researcher Mattias Vesterberg
Centre for Environmental and Resource Economics
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.

About the Lecturer
Since finishing my PhD in 2017, I have been working as a researcher at the Centre for Environmental and Resource Economics (www.cere.se). My current research is concerned with residential electricity demand, and topics include peak demand and the response to real-time pricing, determinants of electricity contract choices and the design of alternative pricing schemes.
