The Swedish Energy Markets Inspectorate (Energimarknadsinspektionen - Ei) commissioned CERE to study Swedish consumer's flexibility to adapt their electricity consumption according to real time prices. The second report has recently been published. 


The first report: "An electricity market in transition - Is consumer flexibility for sale, or even for real?" was published in August 2014 and raised high interest among different stakeholders, including Sweden's Energy Ministry who paid a visit in October 2014.

Further research was identified in the first report and the second report sheds light on:
  • the customer's choice regarding the type of electricity contract,
  • the effect of income over electricity consumption, its level and distribution over time,
  • the households' knowledge about electricity prices and costs, and 4) the choice experiment data is analyzed in depth.
Preliminary results of this second report were presented by CERE researchers Runar Brännlund and Mattias Vesterberg on April 13, 2014. Runar Brännlund will be one of the speakers on this topic on a forthcoming seminar arranged by Ei on June 30, 2015.
