our research interest
How can energy sufficiency be defined and distinguished from other strategies?
What hinders the implementation of sufficiency policies and measures?
What characterizes successful transformation strategies which encompass energy sufficiency?
How can the effects of succiciency be described, evaluated and quantified?
Which multiple effects of energy sufficiency measures can be described (quantitatively and qualitatively)?
How can energy scenarios be developed in inter- and transdisciplinary processes?
The Ensu Team
The junior research group “The role of energy sufficiency in energy transition and society” (EnSu) will systematically include sufficiency strategies in energy system modelling and discuss the current and necessary societal frame conditions for establishing energy sufficiency strategies.
