Synthesis of S3C Deliverable 1.1
Report on state-of-the-art and theoretical framework for end-user behaviour and market roles
The S3C Deliverable 1.1: "Report on state-of-the-art and theoretical framework for end-user behaviour and market roles" presented an overview on how to engage end-users in Smart Grid projects to promote Smart Energy behaviour. Thus, the S3C D1.1 reviews relevant theoretical models and frameworks for unterstanding smart energy behaviour from a psychological, economic, sociological, innovation, transitions and marketing perspective.
Furthermore, it reviews empirical literature describing various ways of implementing tariff structures and incentives, end-user feedback, communication and engagement strategies, privacy and security measures and innovative market structures.
This synthesis integrates findings from the theoretical and empirical literature into an overview of key enablers and barriers for engaging end-users in smart energy behaviour. Also, a set of recommendations for end-user interaction in smart grid projects is offered and key challenges for the further research are identified.
