Household energy supply and demand data is gathered and used to form the basis of PassivSystems’ demand-side response model. The project is investigating different demand-side triggers – electricity price / grid constraints / carbon intensity – using real world data, including a dynamic tariff where pricing changes throughout the day based on retail electricity prices.

This model has the potential to -

  • Benefit residents (enabling them to save money on their energy bills)

  • Benefit the national grid (shifting energy demand away from peak periods) 

  • Benefit the wider low carbon community (shifting energy supply away from coal and gas towards low carbon sources). 

It also aims to be a scalable model, which can be applied across a variety of settings.
