In the past twenty years there have been numerous studies conducted on
the topic of electricity demand. This coincides with the rapid development
of electricity requirements, both residential and non-residential. This
dissertation focuses on the residential demand for electricity in Tasmania.
The accent of this work is on measuring the income elasticity of demand for
electricity. The applications to which this knowledge could be put are discussed
in Chapter One. The main envisaged application, as is indicated there,
is in the use of an income variable in forecasting residential demand for
electricity. Chapter Two presents a review of related studies in which it is
found that investigations in this field do not as a rule develop models of
electricity demand in a rigorous manner from a utility maximization framework.
