Can time-of-use tariffs help unlock the flexibility potential of domestic electricity consumers?

Registration closes February 21st 2023

Webinar: Wednesday 22 February – 2:00 to 3:00pm

Part of  The Role of Demand Management series.

Residential demand flexibility will be increasingly important as we transition to a more electrified system with high levels of renewable energy. As we saw on the first webinar in this series, there are a number of initiatives to encourage households to flex their electricity demand, such as using price signals to incentivize consumers to change the times when they use electricity.

In this webinar,  Dr. Michael Fell, (UCL Energy Institute), and Dr. Jose Luis Ramirez-Mendiola, and Dr. Jieyang Chong (University of Reading) will discuss the effectiveness and fairness of using time-of-use tariffs in the residential sector. Chair: Dr. Catarina Araya Cardoso, Westminster Business School.

Speakers

Dr Michael Fell

UCL Energy Instiute / Senior Research Fellow

Dr Michael Fell

UCL Energy Instiute / Senior Research Fellow

Dr Michael Fell is a senior research fellow at UCL Energy Institute, University College London. His work looks at the social aspects of our transition to a low carbon energy system. In particular, he is interested in who might win or lose from this transition, and how benefits can be spread most broadly.

Dr. Jose Ramirez-Mendiola

University of Reading

Dr. Jose Ramirez-Mendiola

University of Reading

Jose Luis is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow on Flexibility in Energy Demand at the University of Reading. His work focuses on the analysis of the temporal dynamics of energy consumption patterns in relation to people’s engagement in the different activities that encompass their everyday lives.

His research addresses relevant questions through modelling tools which aim to improve our understanding how energy demand is bound up with the rhythm of society and what people do, and assessing interventions aimed at reducing demand peaks and increasing flexibility in the timing of energy demand.

Before joining CREDS, Jose Luis was working towards a PhD in Energy Research at the Environmental Change Institute, University of Oxford. Prior to that, Jose Luis graduated with a degree in Physics from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM), where he also worked as a research assistant for the High-Energy Astrophysics group at the Astronomy Institute (IA-UNAM), helping with the development of stochastic models of Gamma-Ray Bursts.

Dr Jieyang Chong

University of Reading

Dr Jieyang Chong

University of Reading

Jieyang is a Postdoctoral  Research Fellow on Flexibility in Energy Demand at the University of Reading. Broadly, his research investigates flexibility of electricity demand in a broad sense, building upon the idea that demand elasticity depends on factors other than price. His current research explores residential electricity consumption, using data which incorporates time-of-use tariffs.

Jieyang received his PhD in Econometrics from Monash University in Australia. His research interests include time-series and applied econometrics, econometric modelling of electricity markets, and econometric detection of speculative bubbles.

Catarina Cardoso

University of Westminster

Catarina Cardoso

University of Westminster

Catarina Cardoso is an economist with experience in applying interdisciplinary theoretical frameworks to analyse real-world challenges related to the clean energy transition and sustainable development. Her current research focuses on the role of demand-side flexibility in the transition to a low-carbon economy. Catarina teaches energy policy and managerial decision-making at the University of Westminster. Before working in academia, she worked for the Carbon Trust, WWF-UK, and the European Commission on climate change and energy policy issues. She has a PhD from the London School of Economics and an MPhil in Environment and Development from the University of Cambridge. Her first degree is in Economics from the New University of Lisbon
