Agent-based modelling of sustainable residential electricity consumer behaviour
Electricity consumer behaviour due to different smart metering policies is simulated. Consumers are modelled as household agents having dynamic preferences on types of electricity contracts offered by the energy supplier.
The objective of the agent-based model SIMP – Subjective Individual Model for Prosumer – is to explore the diffusion of energy services enabled by smart grid technologies among a population of interacting electricity prosumers and to evaluate the impact of such diffusion on individual and societal performance indicators.
