Abstract
This publication is part of a project called Direct and Indirect Load Control in Buildings performed at the Division of Energy Economics and Planning, Department of Heat and Power Engineering, Lund University, Sweden.

Peak load problems have attracted considerable attention in Sweden during last three winters, caused by a significant decrease in available reserve power, which is a consequence of political decisions and liberalisation of the electricity market. A possible way to lower peak loads, avoiding electricity shortages and reducing electricity costs both for users and utilities, is to make customers experience the price difference during peak load periods and, in this way, become more aware of load demand.

This publication is part of a project called Direct and Indirect Load Control in Buildings performed at the Division of Energy Economics and Planning, Department of Heat and Power Engineering, Lund University, Sweden.

Peak load problems have attracted considerable attention in Sweden during last three winters, caused by a significant decrease in available reserve power, which is a consequence of political decisions and liberalisation of the electricity market. A possible way to lower peak loads, avoiding electricity shortages and reducing electricity costs both for users and utilities, is to make customers experience the price difference during peak load periods and, in this way, become more aware of load demand.

As of January 1st 2001, one of the Swedish energy utilities - Sollentuna Energi - operating in the Stockholm area, introduced a new electricity tariff with differentiated grid fees based on a mean value of the peak load every month. This tariff was introduced for all residential customers in the service area.

The objective of this study is to investigate the extent to which a Load Demand Component, included in electricity pricing, can influence energy use and load demand in residential buildings. What are the benefits and disadvantages for customers and utilities?

This paper investigates the impact of the new tariff on the utility and different types of typical residential customers, making comparisons with previous tariff. (Less)
