Valuing improvements in electricity supply using discrete choice experiments Preferences of private households in India and Germany

In order to design electricity markets to simultaneously reduce the share of fossil fuels in energy production and meet the increasing demand for electricity, knowledge on consumer preferences is necessary. The goal of this cumulative dissertation is to contribute to the understanding of preferences of private households for electricity supply attributes in different contexts. The guiding research questions are 1) what attributes of electricity determine private household electricity supply preferences and 2) how do electricity preferences differ between people and contexts.
Julian Sagebiel address the research questions in four papers which have in common the application of the discrete choice experiment method to elicit preferences.
