Electricity Systems

Studying consumption of electricity in aggregate—at the level of a utility, state, region or country—can yield insights not observable at the level of individual consumers. Furthermore, wiser use of electricity by consumers can be achieved through pricing structures and energy-efficiency programs instituted at the system level. PEEC research has made important contributions to both these areas, from explaining California’s exceptional electricity efficiency over decades to helping utilities more effectively target their customers for efficiency programs.
