The flexibility of the consumers and their preferences regarding the energy bundles



Last Updated: 2-2015


In the future, energy supply and demand will grow and be in greater flux than today. To prevent the network operators from reinforcing their energy grid, it is necessary to find new solutions; otherwise the energy systems will be unaffordable. One of the possible solutions is the energy bundle. This study developed an energy bundle based on the energy behaviour and the activity patterns of the energy consumer in the Netherlands. Through a survey, respondents were questioned about the preferences regarding the energy bundle and their activities. Ordinal regression analyse is used to analyse the preferences of the consumer and the willingness to change their activities by the energy bundle. As the last part this research explains the possibilities to introduce this energy bundle for Stedin, one of the 8 network operators in the Netherlands.
