Uppsala Smart Energy Research group (USER)
A smart electricity grid will never be smarter than its users!
USER - Uppsala Smart Energy Research group – is highly interdisciplinary, combines applied and theoretical, as well as qualitative and quantitative, approaches and engages in extensive collaboration with the industry and other universities.
In light of the recognition that a smart grid will never be smarter than its users, the overall aim of USER is to increase general knowledge on electricity consumers’ and prosumers’ role in bringing to fruition the vision of future smart grids. The research focuses mainly on user behavior and sociotechnical aspects of flexible demand, but also decentralized generation, storage and electric vehicles as well as products and services associated therewith.
