This paper proposes a hybrid approach to optimal day-ahead pricing for demand response management. At the customer-side, a comprehensive energy management system, which includes most commonly used appliances and an effective waiting time cost model is proposed to manage the energy usages in households (lower level problem). At the retailer-side, the best retail prices are determined to maximize the retailer's profit (upper level problem). The interactions between the electricity retailer and its customers can be cast as a bilevel optimization problem. To overcome the infeasibility of conventional Karush-Kuhn-Tucker (KKT) approach for this particular type of bilevel problem, a hybrid pricing optimization approach, which adopts the multi-population genetic algorithms for the upper level problem and distributed individual optimization algorithms for the lower level problem, is proposed. Numerical results show the applicability and effectiveness of the proposed approach and its benefit to the retailer and its customers by improving the retailer's profit and reducing the customers' bills.
