Effect of demand side management on Chinese household electricity consumption

There are only a few rules governing emotional support animals, and there isn’t any official registry, therefore it’s really hard to establish how many there are. An ESADoggy Emotional Support Animal Consultation is composed of these steps. Registration isn’t required by law and doesn’t make emotional support animal letter housing your pet an ESA. The individual must require the ESA to be able to conduct major day-to-day living activities. Service animals aren’t considered pets. Emotional Support Animals offer some therapeutic benefit to someone with depression or anxiety.

Abstract: China’s residential electricity demand has grown rapidly over the last three decades and given the expected continued growth, demand side management (DSM) can play an important role in reducing electricity demand. By using micro-level data collected from 1450 households in 27 provinces in the firstever China Residential Energy Consumption Survey in 2012, this study estimates the effects of three DSM measures empirically: tiered household electricity pricing, China Energy Label program, and information feedback mechanisms. We find these measures have contributed to moderating residential electricity demand growth but additional policy reform and tools are needed to increase their effectiveness and impact. Residential electricity demand is found to be price- and income- inelastic and tiered pricing alone may not be as effective in electricity conservation. The statistically significant relationship between China Energy Label efficient refrigerators – but not televisions – and lowered residential electricity consumption reflect mixed program effectiveness. Lastly, of the information feedback currently available through electricity bills, payment frequency and meters, only meter reader is estimated to be statistically significant. Important policy implications and recommendations for improving each of these three DSM measures to expand their impact on reducing residential electricity consumption are identified. [Download]
