International BE4 Workshop

International BE4 Workshop

Publication date: Dec 10, 2014 10:07 AM

Start: Apr 20, 2015 09:00 AM
End: Apr 21, 2015 05:00 PM

Location: Senate House, Malet Street, London, WC1E 7HU


Building sustainable energy systems requires a focus on behaviour, along with technological development: Behaviour plays a major role in the uptake and use of energy technologies, in driving energy service demand, and its treatment cannot be excluded from the analysis of long-term energy transitions. Whole-system energy modelling approaches have been successful at capturing the technological complexity and economic feedbacks of the energy system, and are used as integrating frameworks to explore the trade-offs in climate mitigation, fuel poverty and energy security priorities. Researchers are increasingly looking to integrate insights across disciplines to increase the behavioural realism of energy system models and include mitigation opportunities from behaviour change, along with technological and fuel solutions.

Workshop Aims
The aims of BE4 are to:

  • Bring together for the first time energy system researchers with expertise and interest in representing behaviour in energy/economy/engineering/environment (E4) models;
  • Develop a common understanding of the state-of-the-art in this emerging field;
  • Identify knowledge gaps;
  • Gain exposure to research in other fields which has successfully integrated behaviour into energy-economy approaches;
