DEI Briefing Note: Understanding the economics of domestic energy use
The Customer-Led Network Revolution (CLNR) project is proving of real value in helping to understand how people use energy in the home. To date (March 2013) the team has conducted approximately 83 in-house interviews with householders, capturing photographs, audio recordings and data.
The core objectives of the Durham University team’s contribution to the CLNR project is to provide insight into the nature of energy demand among households and consider how, why, and with what implications, such demand might be ‘flexible’.
This briefing note is designed to provide an early view of some of the themes and research findings emerging from the research and should be considered as preliminary in terms of the weight attached to both findings and implications.”
