Dynamic road pricing and the value of time and reliability

Daniel A. Brent, Austin Gross
2017 Journal of Regional Science  
Drivers primarily value travel reliability over time savings, although there is heterogeneity in the relative values of time and reliability based on time of day and destination to or from work.  ...  In this paper we estimate the behavioral response of drivers to dynamic pricing in a HOT lane.  ...  Figure 4 presents the income from the survey of HOT users compared to our estimate of the income of all SR167 users from the weighted census data.  ...

Estimating Heterogeneous Treatment Effects in Residential Demand Response [article]

Datong P. Zhou and Maximilian Balandat and Claire J. Tomlin
2018 arXiv   pre-print
Next, we leverage causal decision trees to detect treatment effect heterogeneity across users by incorporating census data.  ...  We evaluate the causal effect of hour-ahead price interventions on the reduction in residential electricity consumption using a data set from a large-scale experiment on 7,000 households in California.  ...  The estimated ATE is −0.10 kWh (11%) per Demand Response event and household.  ...

Business capital accumulation and the user cost: Is there a heterogeneity bias?

Serena Fatica
2018 Journal of macroeconomics  
Empirical models of capital accumulation estimated on aggregate data series are based on the assumption that capital asset types respond in the same way to cost variables.  ...  Likewise, aggregate models do not consider potential heterogeneity in investment behavior originating on the demand side for capital, e.g. at the sector level.  ...  As such, it departs from the bulk of the literature on the substitution elasticity, based on aggregate data (Schaller, 2006; Caballero, 1997; Bond and Xing, 2015) .  ...
