Intervening to enhance flexibility

This sub-theme (4.2) assesses the impacts of interventions aimed at mitigating peaks and increasing flexibility in the timing of energy demand. The focus is on technologies, pricing mechanisms and shifts in institutional timings and understanding the extent to which these shape the temporalities of daily social life and generate new challenges for demand-side flexibility.

4.2.1: Flexible demand-side technologies and temporalities

4.2.1: Price and time elasticity

4.2.3: Time dependence and institutional flexibility

Future projects in the area may include: ‘Flexibility and working arrangements’ and ‘Flexibility and segments of population: older people, solo living, night shifts’.
