Dissertation category: Energy
Dissertation theme: Consumer views of time-of-use energy tariffs
Short summary: Do consumers like the idea of time-of-use energy tariffs?
Detailed summary: We have the opportunity of implementing time-of-use (ToU) tariffs widely across UK homes with the government's plans to update the UK's energy infrastructure. This project (partnered with Islington Council) evaluates existing knowledge about ToU tariffs as well as asking how Islington Council residents feel about the proposition of a ToU tariff, whether smart meters are seen as a barrier to ToU tariffs and whether there are other demographic or psychographic patterns to responses.
