University of Sussex, UK: PhD Research Project – The role of household consumers in future electricity systems

The University of Sussex is offering two DPhil studentships to start in October 2011 that focus on the role household consumers might

play in these future electricity networks.

They will run for three and a half years, and will focus on the following topics:

1. What value householders place on the different services provided by electricity, and how the profile of demand might change to contribute to electricity system flexibility and sustainability.

2. How variations in householders’ willingness and ability to act more sustainably could affect the impact of engagement strategies and incentives from suppliers and government.

Closing date: 4th October.
