Energy scenarios as planned by the Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC) influence energy policy and the direction society takes in dealing with the "Trilemma" of affordability, security of supply and climate change. But how will these energy scenarios impact households energy behaviours? Smart metering and Time-of-Use tariffs will, in the near future, attempt to financially incentivise households to consume energy at different times of the day. In this 10 minute presentation Daniel Quiggin describes his PhD research into the quantification of these changes under DECC energy scenarios. The conclusion - the future will be challenging - electrifying transport and heating combined with decarbonising electricity supply results in potentially unmanageable household behavioural adaptations.
