We are pleased to invite you to attend our ‘Distributional Effects of Time of Use Tariffs’ Webinar which sets out our key findings on the socio-economic impacts of Time of Use tariffs , facilitating a discussion on the implication of these findings to consumers and suppliers, and considering their relevance to achieving Net Zero.
Reducing peak electricity demand is considered critical in order to improve balancing with renewables and reduce costs of electricity generation. Time of Use tariffs could be a convenient and simple way to reward domestic customers for consuming electricity at times of the day when overall demand is low. However, the effects of such tariffs across different groups of consumers are far from clear: who may be disadvantaged and who may benefit?
Research carried out at the University of Reading and funded by UKRI as part of the ‘Distributional Effects of Dynamic Pricing for Responsive Electricity Demand’ (DEePRED) project and ‘Centre for Research into Energy Demand Solutions’ (CREDS) sought to address this question.
Published Paper : It’s only a matter of time: Flexibility, activities and time of use tariffs in the United Kingdom
Aim of the Workshop:
This webinar will present our key findings on the socio-economic impacts of Time of Use tariffs, facilitating a discussion on the implication of these findings to consumers and suppliers, and considering their relevance to achieving Net Zero.
Below you will find the event schedule including speakers (which are subject to change), and instructions on how to register.
The webinar will be of interest to industry, policy-makers, academia and those with interests in analysis of demand flexibility in the context of Net Zero.
