Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

    Operation of the power grid is currently undergoing fundamental and significant changes due to implementation of new technologies and attempts to reduce impact on environment, as well as improve security of supply by diversifying generation mix. This paper outlines a price incentive scheduling tool for consumer-based active demand side management that can prove flexibility necessary for operation of systems with high levels of renewable generation penetration. The scheduling tool helps consumers rescheduling the home appliances corresponding to different pricing notifications based on their energy consumption preferences. The analysis of individual household behaviours is carried out for two price scenarios: (i) predefined electricity price tariff and (ii) forecast real time pricing (RTP) developed on the basis of time series analysis.
