Peaks in electricity demand have profound impact on the environment and capacity shortage in power grids threatens to slow down societal development. An increase in consumption flexibility is considered part of the solution and demand side response is an umbrella term for measures to that end. The lecture illustrates why peak electricity demand is problematic using local conditions as an example and gives an overview of theoretical approaches to understanding electricity consumer behaviour and interventions that aim to bring about flexibility of use.
