Socio-economic aspects of energy use
For some decades in the last century the design of energy systems was mainly conducted from supply-side technologies’ point-of-view. Given the severe problems associated with technologies like nuclear and fossile energy carriers today taking into account customers behavior and preferences is a core focus of energy policies. e-think considers these aspects by putting a strong focus on socio-economic components of energy use and the demand for energy services in heating, transport and electricity-specific applications. Finally, another important focus is to analyze the value of various types of renewables from social point-of-view.
