The_Future_of_Electricity_in_Domestic_Buildings.pdf (file size: 2.04 MB, MIME type: application/pdf)
This paper reviews some of the key issues surrounding the supply, distribution and use of electricity in domestic buildings. Its primary aim is to consider the electricity system in a holistic, albeit simple, way and thereby identify some of the inter-relationships and inevitable compromises that inherently arise. By adopting a ‘horizontal’ system wide review the hope is that the paper stimulates an integrated system wide debate surrounding how electricity in domestic buildings will evolve in the future. Only by doing this will electricity generation and consumption be harmonised with national targets and future consumer lifestyle need.
