Security of supply and the energy transition : the households' perspective investigated through a discrete choice model with latent classes

Motz, Alessandra

In: Energy economics, 2021, vol. 97, no. May, p. 16 p

A consumer-centric, market-based approach to the security of electricity supply has been recognized as increasingly important in the context of the energy transition.

Using stated preference data, we develop a discrete...

In: The Basilica of Saint John Lateran to 1600, 2020, p. 345-378
