Abstract/Summary This research was conducted as part of the Australian Energy Regulator's Demand Management Innovation Incentive Scheme. The research was commissioned by TransGrid, the NSW state-owned electricity transmission business to inform energy policy, programs and pricing relating to the issue of peak electricity demand. The independent evaluation reviewed electricity consumer demand management research conducted by the electricity distribution business, Ausgrid. The report presented key findings relating to time-of-use (TOU) pricing, consumer responses to dynamic peak pricing (DPP), seasonal time-of-use (STOU), interruptible load, and other tariff types. In addition, the research explored consumer attitudes and behaviours relating to energy and environmental issues. Areas needing further research were identified and a key recommendation was to explore research utilising beyond the narrow range of disciplines previously engaged with (e.g. economics, psychology). The research contributed to TransGrid's understanding of electricity consumers to inform future demand management program and research strategies.
