This informal talk focuses on some recent work on the end-user market for electricity. Such markets are organized in different ways, this talk is based on the Norwegian version. Our starting point is that in most electricity markets, the households' demand in the short run is not at all price sensitive. However, in some countries (Norway among them) hourly measuring of consumption is being introduced. We ask: How can a supplier of electricity utlilize the fact that hourly measuring and hourly pricing makes residential customers price sensitive? The setup will be discussed, and a few (game) models introduced. The work is based on the PhD-thesis of Erling Pettersen - to be defended in April 2004.
