Introducing smart grids in residential contexts: consumers' perception of smart household appliances

Jeroen Stragier UGent, Laurence Hauttekeete UGent and Lieven De Marez UGent (2010) 2010 IEEE Conference on Innovative Technologies for an Efficient and Reliable Electricity Supply. p.135-142
abstract
A more energy efficient supply and demand in household settings is high on the agenda. Smart grids, smart meters, demand side management and smart appliances play a crucial role in this context. Many stakeholders are involved, but the exact role of the customer is often neglected. More specifically, his opinion, attitude, drivers or barriers towards new ways of energy consumption and energy management. This paper employs a user-centric perspective. It aims at mapping consumers perception of the possibilities of demand side management through smart household appliances. A quantitative survey was conducted among 500 households spread over Flanders, Belgium. In this paper, the results of this survey with regard to the respondents perception of smart appliances are presented. The Technology Acceptance Model was used as the theoretical framework to measure these perceptions.
