Abstract: As expectations have risen about the deployment of smart grids, it is important to investigate the diffusion process of smart equipment such as smart meters, photovoltaic generation, and electric/hybrid vehicles. However, since the revealed preference data have not been accumulated for smart equipment diffusion, this paper conducts a conjoint analysis to examine consumers’ stated preferences on the basis of an online survey administered in March 2011. A mixed logit model that allows for individual heterogeneity is adopted for estimation, and willingness-to-pay values are calculated for the attributes. Furthermore, the rates of diffusion, the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, and interdependencies among types of smart equipment are investigated.
