Mattias Vesterberg, who will defend his dissertation in the beginning of 2017, recently had two papers published.

His paper on hourly income elasticity of electricity is published in Energy Economics. This paper used detailed data set on appliance-level electricity consumption at the hourly level to estimate end-use-specific income elasticities for electricity. He found out that the income elasticities are highest during peak hours for kitchen and lighting, with point estimates of roughly 0.4, but insignificant for space heating.

In his other paper on residential end-use electricity demand with Chandra Kiran B Krishanmurhty, published in Energy Journal, he explores possible restrictions on load shifting (e.g. the office hours schedule) as well as the cost implications of different load shift patterns. The reduction in total daily cost from shifting load up to five hours ahead is found to be very small (2-4%) to create incentives for Swedish households and retailers to adopt dynamic pricing of electricity.
