08 - Load shifting to incentivize renewable energy

How much CO2 emissions are attached to your electricity consumption?

⛶ Full screen

The composition of electricity production (renewable / non-renewable) as well as electricity imports fluctuate in time. Using electricity in the right moment may potentially help to incentivise the production of renewable energy.

The Challenge

  • Analyze the causal relationships between time of energy consumption and impacts on energy production
  • Create a metric according to which electrical load can be shifted to set the right incentives towards more renewable energy
  • Investigate what such a metric means in practice, i.e. in case of e-vehicle charging
