Self-Produced Electricity for a sustainable development
Funded by Elforsk and Göteborg Energis Forskningsstiftelse 20080401-20090630.
Today households can buy or rent small scale electricity productions plants for home uwe such as "balcony mounted electricity", solar panels and micro wind turbines. The concept of self-produced electricity is supposed to change how electricity users perceive, understand and think about their electricity use and will also leed to new demand on the established electricity market players.
The purpose with this project is to investigate the ideas around the concept of self-produced electricity - both users and suppliers ideas. We will also discuss what institutional affects own produced electricity could have on the electricity market. The project focuses on implementation and use of these home production plants as well as motifs and strategies for its use.
