Peter Warren (UCL Energy Institute): Reducing Energy Demand: who, how, why?
Energy demand-side management (DSM) refers to technologies, actions and programmes on the demand-side of energy meters that seek to manage or decrease energy consumption, in order to reduce overall energy system expenditures or contribute to the achievement of policy objectives such as carbon emissions reduction or balancing energy supply and demand. The research aims to explore the benefits and challenges of DSM in electricity systems and to determine what constitutes best practice policies to stimulate its development. The project analyses government and utility data from DSM programmes conducted around the world and explores the contextual factors that have allowed or prevented their success. The programme evaluation is enriched through extensive reviews of academic, industrial and political publications, and interviews with DSM experts. Establishing the transferability of best practice programmes and policies to the UK is a key output of the research.
