SPATIALEC/SAVE research features at two NZ conferences

Posted on 25th November, 2018

Dr Ben Anderson presented two aspects of ongoing SERG work on electricity demand at two recent conferences in New Zealand as part of his SPATIALEC EU MSCA Global Fellowship. The first, Electrifying Heat: Patterns of electricity consumption in electrically heated households in the UK and New Zealand
was presented at ICEERB 2018, the 8th International Conference on Energy and Environment of Residential Buildings, Wellington while the second, Seeing the light: The effects of LED light bulb installation on electricity demand in UK households: results of a large n randomised control trial was presented at the 12th OERC Energy & Climate Change Symposium 2018 on 22 & 23 November at Otago Museum, Dunedin.

The first paper drew on both the SAVE and GREEN Grid datasets to look at the role of electric heating in peak demand while the second summarised the results of the SAVE LED trial and placed them in a New Zealand context.
