Residential electricity demand: a modelling analysis of the dynamics of household activity and energy consumption patterns



Jose Luis's research focuses on further our understanding of the dynamics of electricity consumption patterns in the residential sector as a result of households' engagement in different activities. His research looks into the relationships between daily activity and appliance usage patterns, as well as into the effect that different socio-demographical factors have on household electricity consumption. The research should help improve our insight into the potential of low-carbon strategies such as intra-day demand load shifting.

Before joining the Lower Carbon Futures group at the Environmental Change Institute, Jose Luis graduated with a degree in Physics from the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM). He also worked as a research assistant for the High-Energy Astrophysics group at the Astronomy Institute (UNAM), helping with the development of stochastic models of Gamma-ray bursts.
