The Fellowship and the Ring - Research and DSM

301

Published on

Dr Janet Stephenson and Dr Allan Miller tell the fantasy tale of getting two very large demand side management research projects off the ground - Energy Cultures 2 and Green Grid. Told at the Wellington IEA DSM Storytelling workshop on March 17, 2014.

  • Forming the fellowship
  • E.g. We use energy frugally in all activities. Put on jersey rather than turn on heater. Only heat one room of house, wash in cold water.
  • Invite audience to suggest some of the external influences
  • Collaborative culture is having an influence more and more on business trends. From couchsurfing, to coworking, colunching, coshopping and of course carsharing.
  • But what might the future hold, across all energy uses – ever-increasing demand and supply, power grid giants striding across the world, supercities in thrall to energy companies?
  • Or a future in which engagement in energy supply and demand were much more part of everyday life, where renewable supply increased to 90-100% of electricity, more distributed generation, emergence of prosumers, integrated management of supply and demand,...?
  • Demand management means involved citizens, households.Wlillingness to engageEnergy literacyAdoption of new (and old) energy eficiency technologies and practicesA changing energy culture
  • Changing norms, expectations, energy literacy
  • Building a vision and rapidly moving towards this over past 8 years
  • The challenging landscape that has to be traversed by the Fellowship
  • The Fellowship and the Ring - Research and DSM
