Technology Transforming Markets: Large-Scale Field Experiments in Electricity Use

The Energy Markets Program looks at market challenges around next generation electricity with the ambition of establishing the University as an internationally recognised hub for energy economics research.Advances in digital and information technology are radically changing the way people buy and consume energy through helping households make better-informed electricity usage decisions.

In 2015, the program grew with the establishment of two new engagements, a large Victorian electricity retailer (with >250,000 customers), and another with South East Water (with >750,000 customers). The Energy Markets Program is now running four innovative large-scale field experiments that inform policy-relevant questions surrounding flexible electricity pricing, solar panel adoption and electricity use.

The program is an example of the way partnerships between the University, private sector and government create the opportunity for research that is of high value for policymakers and academics alike.

The Energy Markets Program is helping the University develop the critical research capacity required to become an international leader in energy and resource economics
