The Total and Appliance-Specific Conditional Demand for Electricity in the Household Sector

Michael Parti and Cynthia Parti

Bell Journal of Economics, 1980, vol. 11, issue 1, 309-321

Abstract: This study presents a set of twelve monthly cross section regression analyses of the household demand for electricity. The methodology to be used is based upon a conditional demand framework which can be used to disaggregate the total household demand for electricity into the component demand functions for electricity through the media of particular appliances, even though no direct observations on specific appliance energy usage exist. The latter demand functions are used to estimate the monthly and annual average energy use for these appliances as well as the corresponding price and income elasticities.
