Guido Pepermans ()

Energy Economics, 2014, vol. 45, issue C, 280-294

Abstract: This paper assesses to what extent consumers are willing to make use of the features and capabilities offered by smart meters. Via a choice experiment households are offered the choice between a set of smart meters, described by six attributes: impact on the comfort and privacy level, functionality, visibility, cost savings, and investment outlay.
