Brief Abstract

This research aims to provide a better understanding of technological and social interaction of grid-edge technology associated with residential households. Electricity generation causes greenhouse gases that are mixed in the atmosphere and thus create a global impact on the environment and human individuals. In this PhD project, Carsten will investigate both qualitative and quantitative data to identify the particularities of energy consumption as a result of household behaviour and utilised technology after the adoption of grid edge technology.
