Article
Full-text available
Growing self-generation and storage are expected to cause significant changes in residential electricity utilization patterns. Commonly applied volumetric network tariffs may induce imbalance between different groups of households and their respective contribution to recovering the operating costs of the grid. Understanding consumer behaviour and a...
Article
Photovoltaic (PV) units and electric vehicles (EVs) are two household goods that are the focus of much research, and many policy initiatives attempting to promote a more sustainable, low-carbon energy system. Despite both academic and practical interest in household adoption of PV units and EVs, potential linkages in these household decisions have...
Article
New network tariffs designed to recover grid operating costs can introduce up to a 500% increase in charges for some households. A transition from volumetric to peak-load-based tariffs will require targeted policy measures such as clear price signals, information about household electricity consumption and temporary compensation or mitigation mecha...
Article
Peak demand reduction is a key element in demand management programs targeting the stabilization of the electricity grid. This study examines a field experiment in Austria that investigated rebates and non-monetary incentives to reduce household electricity consumption during evening peak demand times. The experiment was conducted on 1,257 Austrian...
Article
Charging infrastructure is one of the key ingredients necessary to further increase the market uptake of plug-in electric vehicles (PEVs). Most public charging infrastructure in Europe is not profitable, and 42% of European households reside in dwellings with no possibility to install a private charger, which are key limitations to the build-up of...
Article
Full-text available
We analyze European citizens' willingness to take climate mitigation action with data on one-time donation choices from a survey of 15,951 people across 27 nations. Responses are explored with an interdisciplinary hybrid choice model that integrates principles of psychology and economics. The results suggest that only participants who are certain a...
Preprint
Full-text available
Detailed numerical models of power markets with millions of variables and equations are often perceived as black boxes, because differences in results cannot be traced back to single equations or assumptions, respectively. We unravel parts of those black box by determining the impact of different investment cost specifications including the role of...
Article
Full-text available
This paper presents the results of a choice experiment for investments in community renewable energy (CRE) projects administered across 31 European nations. In the sample of 18,037 respondents, a high level of interest in the CRE investments is observed, with 79% of respondents choosing to invest in at least one of the eight investment scenarios sh...
Article
Interdisciplinary research is especially relevant in the energy field where ambitious political targets for the energy transition require rapid advancements in technology and simultaneous developments in social norms and citizen engagement. Challenges related to interdisciplinary communication and the integration of findings across disciplines have...
Article
The EU implemented the Market Stability Reserve (MSR) in response to the 2008 financial crisis to deal with short-term impacts of future shocks, such as the COVID-19 pandemic. We link a model that intertemporally optimizes the handling of banked allowances every five years with one that simulates the annual working of the EU ETS including the MSR w...

Data
International survey of the ECHOES project is a large survey dataset than contains responses from 31 countries: EU-28 (2018) + 3 countries. The dataset contains raw data in four different formats: dta, rdata, sav and xlsx. Codebook and survey questionnaire are included.
Technical Report
Full-text available
This Deliverable elaborates a consolidated scientific knowledge base stemming from the correlation of the main findings obtained throughout the ECHOES project with the existing literature in order to advance consensus on the key factors and relationships driving (or meaningfully influencing) specific energy choices and related behavioural patterns...
Article
Resistance of the local population to new energy infrastructure may hinder achieving the European Union's goal that 32% of energy consumption come from renewable sources. A vast literature is available on the social acceptance of specific renewable energy technologies, but existing research lacks assessments regarding comprehensive transformations...

Project
The core of the project is an empirically and numerically coordinated approach to model endogenous technological progress in the European power market. Empirically, the learning curve methodology is applied, the results of which are subsequently incorporated into a partial equilibrium model with country-level resolution. Spillover effects and approaches to their model integration are also investigated. The results are expected to suggest ways for an efficient climate and technology policy in the context of power markets.
Project
SMARTEES is a transdisciplinary research project which aims to support the energy transition and improve policy design by developing alternative and robust policy pathways that foster citizen inclusion and take local peculiarities into account. To reach these objectives, SMARTEES examines fives types of energy and mobility related local social innovation in ten front-runner cities across Europe. The results stemming from this analysis will then feed into the development of a policy sandbox tool. Using a comprehensive modelling approach, this tool will help forecast the effects of policy measures and social innovation in similar local contexts, thereby supporting the improvement of policy design and decision-making. Through these means, the project will contribute to achieving a resilient, low-carbon and climate-friendly Energy Union that puts citizens at its core. The SMARTEES project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 763912.
