SERG’s Dr Ben Anderson has just submitted a response to Ofgem’s (2019) Access and Forward-Looking Charges Significant Code Review – Winter 2019 working paper. Ben’s comments focused on:

  1. How options could be applied to small users and
  2. Ofgem’s Behavioural Insight Report on small users

Ben’s comments summarised SERG’s work on the flexibility of electricity demand, energy use habits and its insights for understanding (and thus manipulating) electricity demand in households. He also drew on his recent MSCA Global Fellowship research at the University of Otago, including his knowledge of the New Zealand electricity market and its approach to managing winter peak demand.
