The aim of this study was to understand the systemic effect of introducing time-varying tariffs, demand-response schemes and decentralised storage (in particular by exploiting electric vehicles). The social acceptability of both these mechanisms has been carefully taken care of by rolling out a survey aiming at measuring the willingness of the residential sector to enrol in demand-response and/or decentralised storage schemes.
