AAAE Virtual Event: Accounting for the social aspects of the energy transition

Mitigating the impacts of climate change will require a substantial shift in household energy consumption practices. Understanding the dynamics of household energy consumption practices is therefore critical to the study of energy system transitions.

In this session, David Foord will present lessons from sociotechnical transition studies and discuss how they might be applied to energy system modelling.
